I was traveling over three hours a day for work, scheduled 11 hours salary manager, falling asleep driving home. I asked for a transfer closer to home due to falling asleep and it was not granted. my family and I relocated to a new area making my drive 4 hours a day so I resigned. I was in talks with another big box retailer who was going to bring me on but then transferred someone internally on a hardship transfer. Can I apply for unemployment or is it pointless.
You always apply. You never know. A hardship may win the day. If you can come up with a story that they transferred you. Or promised something else. Normally this would not work, but there is a transportation safe harbor. I do not know if you fit it. there is also a health reason. Go to VOLUNTARY QUIT
This gives you all the safe harbor or loop holes to quit and receive unemployment.
Good Luck. (there are quite a few reasons. see if you can fit into one of them)
But do, apply. and if you relocated to another area because of a family member's job, that might also save the day.
