  • PA Termination UC Benifits Pennsylvania

    I had a question in regards to being terminated and if I am able to still recieve uc benifits. I went and filled out the online forum to collect uc benifits and i clicked on lack of work instead of laid off. And I got a letter from UC stated that my old employer stated that I quit work. I already filled out their forum they sent me stating it was a mistake that i chose lack of work and also plan on calling them to further explain what I had done. But the whole fact that my old employer sent back a verification for separation form stating I quit is wrong. I have the paper that came from hr with her signature and mine and the date. Right next to the date it said termination. Now am I confused what termination means or does it mean laid off or fired not quit. Also will I still be able to get benifits.

    Thank you in advance for you help in clearing up my confusion.

    Terminated means your employment ended. If you quit, it's a voluntary termination. If your employer initiates the end of the employment (regardless of whether you call it a layoff, a firing, or what have you) it's an involuntary termination.

    One way or another, if you no longer work there, it's a termination.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
