Also, for a NJ claimant, he has the added protection that when you quit over a change in working conditions, even if the work is still suitable after the quit, you're only penalized with a 4-wk DQ in a "refusal of suitable work."
"Your employer changes the terms of your employment
If your employer significantly changed the terms of your employment (or offered you a different position), and you quit because you were unhappy with the new terms, you should be able to collect unemployment benefits if the new wages, hours, job duties, job location or other conditions of work offered were so undesirable that any reasonable person would want to leave. If you are in this situation and apply for unemployment benefits, the NJDOL will have to decide whether or not the new work offered was “suitable.” If the new terms were “unsuitable,” then you should receive benefits. But if the NJDOL finds that the new terms were suitable and you were wrong in not accepting the new terms, you will be penalized by having to wait four weeks (from the date you filed your claim) before receiving any unemployment benefits. "
That's pretty much a slap on the hands to get out of a bad situation.
