The question of a former employee’s eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits often arises after an employee is fired or laid off. An employee who quits may also be eligible for unemployment insurance benefits, depending on the circumstances. Under the “experience-rating system” in New York, unemployment insurance claims by former employees can have a significant financial impact on employers.
