I have been working as a CNA in an Ohio rehab and nursing facility for about 5 months now. Since I have been at this job about 5 aides have come and/or gone. We are constantly understaffed and it's hard to come in to work knowing you have 8 hours of work taking care of 30+ people by yourself. I would wait until I found something else but I'm too burnt out. Is this justifiable cause for quitting?

It might be, but I doubt you've taken the time to collect irrefutable proof that your working conditions are out of line with what other CNA's put up with at other facilities.

However, just start complaing up a storm to your boss each and every chance you get that they better hire help because you refuse to try to do the work of two people. They'll either get you the help you need or fire you to shut you up, and then you'll get your UI.

Do not walk out until you have adequate proof you had spoken to your boss about the understaffing at your company. Record everything and possibly even a written letter to your boss outlining your anxiety and fears for your on health under such poor conditions.

The EDD in CA look at all of these points before making a decision. As long as you can chronicle your series of complaints to your employer then present these items at a EDD interview, you have a better chance of getting approved for EDD payments.

Just quitting now and with no material evidence to back up your decision will surely hamper your efforts to get UI
