Atlanta, GA asked in Employment Law for Ohio

Q: Unemployment eligibility

My daughter teaches at Ohio State and since they won't be holding summer classes this year due to covid-19, she will be unemployed from May to August. In the past, when she was still a student, they technically have "terminated" her and rehired her for the next semester. This time they are asking her to write a letter of resignation and then they will rehire her for the new semester in August. Will that make her ineligible for unemployment?

A: Voluntarily resigning your position is a problem for unemployment benefits since you are only supposed to collect those benefits if you are unemployed through no fault of your own.
