WAG 03-15-03.

A job quit does not affect eligibility if:

  • there was good cause for quitting the job; or
  • the job called for working less than 20 hours per week; or
  • gross weekly earnings (including tips) were less than the Federal minimum wage times 20 hours (see WAG 25-06-08); or
  • the person quit the job more than 60 days before the date of application; or
  • the employer reduced the number of hours of work; or
  • it was due to the ending of a self-employment business; or
  • the employer demanded the person resign from the job; or
  • the person quit a job to start a new job for at least the same wages or hours, and was laid off or lost the new job through no fault of their own.
