Delaware Unemployment Eligibility

In order to establish unemployment eligibility in Delaware you have to:

1. Be a resident of Delaware. If you are not a resident of Delaware, but worked in Delaware at your last job, you should still have Delaware unemployment eligibility.
2. Have worked and earned income in Delaware.
3. You must not be disabled.
4. You must be able to work.
5. You must be actively looking for a new job.
6. You must have lost your job through no fault of your own. If you quit your job or were fired for 'just cause' you may not be eligible to collect unemployment in Delaware. Every case is different, so if you lost your job -- be sure to apply to unemployment in case you are indeed eligible to receive unemployment benefits.

There are special rules that apply to unemployment elibility for military personnel and union workers, so check with your mility or union representative for these rules.

I was told to leave my job by the office manager and she stated you do not pull your weight around here anyway---filed for unemployment 14 days ago and have heard nothing. Does this indicate I will not be eligible to collect anything---worked for 15 months there and 3 people have been bullied out of their job there by this mean manager who calls herself the rn nurse office manager when after checking license regulations she is a lpn who has been writing and forging prescriptions too.
