What can disqualify you from unemployment benefits in NY?
You must be unemployed through no fault of your own in order to claim unemployment
The New York State Department of Labor will issue a Notice of Determination if your application for unemployment benefits is rejected (NYSDOL). The decision will include the reasons for denying your claim and the steps you might take to appeal.
Examples of why unemployment benefits claims are often rejected include:
Lack of Sufficient Income
Being Fired Due to Inappropriate Conduct
Quitting Your Previous Employer
Turning Down Acceptable Employment
A successful appeal of an unemployment benefits rejection is not always recommended. If, for example, your earnings are below the threshold for eligibility, an appeal would be fruitless. If, however, the question of whether you have good reason to resign or not is ambiguous, an appeal may be warranted.
