Minnesota Unemployment Rules

In order to receive unemployment benefits in Minnesota you must follow these rules:

1. You must be able to work, and are not disabled.
2. You must be actively looking for a job, and keeping a record of your job search.
3. You must file a weekly certification.
4. You must not make more than your weekly wage allowance. In some cases, you will be able to work while collecting unemployment - but only so much per week. Make sure when you apply for unemployment that you are very clear about how much you are able to earn each week. Your unemployment counselor will be able to tell you how much this is.

As long as you follow these Minnesota unemployment rules, you will continue to receive your unemployment benefits.

I work for a family owned business and the president and vice president of the company leave every winter for the warmer climates - they asked some employees to do some research about our boss for them - we did and our boss found out and she is giving as an option of either listening to her or to leave the job - can i get unemployment for a hostile work environment considering we are now feeling threatened about how to listen to and if we dont like what she says we have to leave? I cant afford to just up and leave, however if i can get unemployement that makes the situation different for me.
