Can I win my Unemployment Appeal?

Asked about 1 year ago - Houston, TX

In February, I was laid off from my full-time job because of a company reorganization.
I filed for unemployment, however I still had my part time job.
During my part-time job, I was diagnosed with tendonitis, which prohibited me from working because my condition would get worse. I have a doctor's note and documentation, so do you think I could win my appeal? They said I can no longer receive because I quit my job. Please help!

    Answered . Generally speaking, voluntarily leaving your most recent employment will disqualify you from receiving unemployment benefits. As always, however, you would want to speak with an attorney to fully develop the facts or your particular situation.
