I Didn't Quit - You Fired Me!

An employee who voluntarily quits their job is, in most circumstances, not entitled to collect unemployment benefits or sue their employer for wrongful termination.  However, an employee who believes they were forced to quit their job because their working conditions were intolerable may be able to argue that they were "constructively discharged," meaning that the termination of their employment is viewed not as a resignation but as though the employee was fired. In such circumstances, an employee who might not otherwise have been able to apply for unemployment benefits or to make a claim against their employer for wrongful termination will be permitted to do so.
