My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Alabama
I have a friend who would like to quit her job due to the terms and conditions of her employment having changed. She must have unemployment benefits to do this, since her finances are too tight to go without income even short-term while job hunting.
It is well-known that her employer is financially strapped, and for that reason she has been told that her health insurance was being terminated, there would no longer be paid vacations, no more paid sick days, and the length of a vacation they approved many months ago would be cut in half (she is a quite indispensable employee there). And, she has been a model employee in her 3 years....never called in sick, never late, customers love her, etc.
As far as I know, there is no written documentation of any kind, from either her or the employer.
Alabama's unemployment handbook simply states that one may be eligible for benefits if a resignation was for "good reason". So, what would some of those reasons be?
Thanks for any help.
