i was denied unemployment benefits because i left a job i had for another job that payed more and was in the field i have 15 years of experience in. 4 months later the new company has a layoff because of no funds. I file for unemployment and the state denies me unemployment benefits because i left the previous job on my terms and wasn't let go. how is this possible i have worked for 25 years and never have had a long period of time in between jobs. I have been paying every check for moments like this in case i need money from unemployment. And now i am denied because i took a better job to make a better life for me and my family. How UN-American is that....or is it American.What can i do to make this right? If i don't have an income how can i hire somebody to help me. I need advice what to do. I'm sure i am not the only person this has happened to in Colorado.
