Unemployment compensation is insurance that protects employees from total income loss. When individuals become unemployed, they can apply for unemployment compensation and if they qualify, they will receive benefits from a state unemployment compensation fund until they find other employment. Individuals are entitled to collect unemployment compensation benefits when they lose their job by no fault of their own. Individuals who qualifiy receive weekly checks, as a way to provide temporary financial relief.
Individuals who quit their jobs are typically not qualified for unemployment compensation unless they resigned their job on the basis of harassment, hazardous working conditions or discrimination. Sometimes, employers may contest a former employee's claims for unemployment compensation. In this case, a former employee is entitled to dispute and appeal the denied benefits in a hearing.
