Employees who lose their jobs in Michigan may be under the impression that they will receive unemployment compensation. However, there are certain rules in the state that dictate the providing of benefits. It is important for workers who have lost their jobs and are expecting to receive unemployment to understand what can stop the benefits. The Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) will accrue the necessary information to make a decision.
There are numerous reasons why an employee might be disqualified from receiving benefits. For example, quitting by one's own volition without a good reason that can be attributable to the employer or retiring voluntarily may lead to a disqualification. An employee may also be disqualified if he or she was dismissed for misconduct that was linked to the work, dismissed due to being intoxicated at work, was placed on suspension for disciplinary reasons, was laid off for misconduct, was dismissed because of absence due to being imprisoned or convicted, was dismissed for discipline due to taking part in a wildcat strike or was dismissed for theft.
