Hi,
I currently work in NYC and live in NJ.
I am moving to Texas in April and am worried about finding a job there that will pay as much as I get now, and that will not be a step back in my career.

About 50% of my company work remotely - from home - all over the country. My bosses are known to work from home a couple of times a week and I have been working from home sometimes (snow days, back injury, etc.) as well.

If I tell my company I am moving , and that I would like to work remotely and stay with the company - and they say no - can I collect unemployment? I am perfectly able to work remotely from Texas. But they will just not be pleased with this. So I am not technically 'quitting'.

I'll still have a legal address here, as I have an apt in NJ.

Probably not. That sounds too much like an "I QUIT" on your part. If they say "No you cannot work from home fuill time" and you DO go to Texas, you are very much TECHNICALLY quitting. Either that or you have a terrible commute on your hands.
