My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Illinois.
After 3 years, I quit my job because owner was giving me hard time at work. My unemployment was denied because I quit the job. After 1 month I was able to find another full time permanent job with lower pay but unfortunately I got a lay-off after 5 weeks. I am still looking around for a stable job. I live in Illinois, Cook County.
My Questions are:
1)Am I qualified for unemployment since I worked only 5 weeks?
2)From which employer unemployment department will collect my unemployment benefits: lay-off employer (recent employer) or the employer I quit (previous employer)?
