  • unemployment in new jersey for person who quit New Jersey

    I quit from my job due to a hostile work environment. I am facing a fact finding interveiw to receive unemployment on 11/17/09. I want to know what to expect to be asked and what I should say. A little background info. I let a coworker use a free hotel offer from a hotel/casino because it was her 21st birthday and her husband just returned from iraq. the room was under my name but i let her use it. She threw a party, trashed the room, and the hotel blacklisted me for life and is harassing me for the 1000 dollar damage to the room. This obviously created a volotile work environment, because i had to sue for damages and she started to spread rumors to clients and managers at work that i was harassing her. I asked for different shifts to avoid her, and a transfer to a different department. I also went to hr and they told me it was an issue from off the property so they cant help me. they did nothing to alleviate the hostile environment. I quit and filied for unemployment. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is the definition of a hostile work environment:
    A hostile work environment exists when an employee experiences workplace harassment and fears going to work because of the offensive, intimidating, or oppressive atmosphere generated by the harasser based on race, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or, in some jurisdictions, sexual orientation, political affiliation, citizenship status, marital status, or personal appearance,

    Hostile work environment is also one of the two legal categories of sexual harassment.

    I'm not sure that I see a hostile work environment here. Also, you (with rare exceptions) don't get UI benefits when you quit a job.

    All you can do is tell the truth during the interview.
