If you take a voluntary layoff, can you still get unemployment from the state?

Unemployment is for people who got laid off not people who quit work

People "raise their hand" quite often and volunteer when lay-offs are coming. They get severance and unemployment if they stay unemployed. People thinking of moving on anyway do this so they get the severance. Companies let them because the employee is leaving anyway.

Do you mean voluntary furlough? Why would you ever take a voluntary layoff

I’m sure every state is different. I guess for me The unemployment wouldn’t be the deciding factor as it’s nowhere near enough to pay for much (CA)

Arrow Icon

Depends on each state’s definition and policy..Also some “voluntary layoffs” are really not voluntary

AdAge really needs to do more background checks on these agencies. How does an agency layoff 20% of its people and make the A-list? Stretching the truth much? Good grief.

I’m feeling incredibly upset and depressed. I’m at a job I hate, even though I know I should be grateful to still be employed. I had an offer for a job I really wanted pre-corona that recently rescinded their offer due to lack of demand. Then I had 2 interviews this summer so far, and both rejected me :/ even though I spent so much time preparing. I feel hopeless and stuck. I don’t know how to get out of this state and be motivated to apply again. Or just be content with where I’m at. Advice?
