My wife is collecting UI and being sent to Essex County College thru unemployment. She was working part time in Clifton NJ in a fast food place until they wanted her to transfer to a woodbridge location in november. That change would have effected her school schedule. She opted not to take the relocation offer and quit. She was just recently up for recertification and we job a letter for an appointment with a claims examiner interview for reason " You may have quit your job without good cause attributable to the work" I am now concerned they may take her benefits and her tuition waiver away. Is this reason enough to have the benefits denied?

Forgot to mention the part time job in question is NOT the job the claim is based on.

They expected her to transfer from Clifton to Woodbridge? Jeez- it's not like they're right next door to one another. That's a pretty hefty difference in commute time.

I think there is a certain distance that they can ask you to relocate to. If it is further she can quit and collect unemployment benefits. I am in the same scenerio... quit to go to school on the Tuition Waiver (you have to go fulltime) Was told by a lawyer that I will Lose my unemployment benefits completely. It would have been nice if the WD counselor told me this!!!

You can not quit a job and receive UI. Its just the way it is. If anything its the other way around when it comes to schooling, They expect you to quit the schooling if you are offered a job or risk losing your UI benefits. They dont want you on the UI rolls. So schooling isn't going to count. It is true you can get a wavier so you keep getting your UI benefits while going to school but if a job is offered you have to take it.

You cannot quit a job while on unemployment. The tuition waiver program is not an entitlement. It is a privilege and a very generous one. You are going to school for free, school that for others costs thousands in dollars in loans they will be paying back with interest for years to come. If the relocation interferes with schooling, then you must adjust your school shedule and if that's not possible you simply have to quit school. You can't simply quit a part-time job because it interferes with your tuition-waived schooling. You are also required to look for a job while you are attending school on the tuition waiver. If a job is offered to you, you must either attend scool full time on your off-hours, or quit school. That's how it works and how it should work.
