  • unemployment for voluntary furlough? Georgia

    in order to avoid furloughs, my company offered 6 month leaves. i took one and filed for unemployment. my company has offered these leaves in the past to avoid furloughs and other employees have collected unemployment. i was denied unemployment because i took a voluntary leave. i will appeal this, but wondered what georgia's laws were regarding taking a voluntary furlough. lots of states grant unemployment benefits. i tried to find something in writing, but don't know how to find it! this is my first time taking a leave like this.

    During your appeal, the ALJ will decide whether this should be considered a voluntary leave or not & whether benefits should be approved or denied. It's their decision.

    Just tell the truth during the appeal - that you took "voluntary" leave in place of furlough.
