Virginia unemployment, am I eligible?

Question by : Virginia unemployment, am I eligible?
I had been working in Virginia for 5.5 years and recently relocated to Pennsylvania and took a job there. I am a commissioned sales person with a small salary. I was given a figure by the president of the company that the lowest paid sales person made with his company. Once I was there and learned more through company statistic access and from the other sales people I learned this was very far from the truth. After my training period I was told to go to work temporarily in one of their communities that was over an hour drive away. Knowing I wasn’t going to be able to make the money I was told I would I was concerned about having to drive so far and the amount of fuel I would use every week to get there. I expressed all of these concerns to the sales manager. I was suffering migraine headaches over this because I was also living in one of the company’s homes at their encouragement with a large rent payment and would now have to move again after being there only a month and a half.

I emailed the two sales managers my concerned and heard back from one who addressed many of the issues and made me feel better about them. I told her I was willing to go to the new neighborhood. Then the other manager called me and was angry I talked to the first manager and told me not to report to work until I heard back from him. I was placed on administrative leave. I then attended a meeting between myself, the president, and the two sales managers where they let me go with no explanantion other than they felt they had no other choice.

I know this is hard to understand and I am willing to answer any other questions but can you please give me an idea if I will now qualify for UE benefits? I have a call scheduled with a deputy soon.

Thank you in advance.
Thanks for your reply. I understand it is impossible to know without hearing both sides of the story. It would help me if they would have given me a cause for letting me go but all the president said was he saw no other choice. I wasn’t rude or demanding. I actually told them I didn’t want any special favors from them. I basically just said that I have been extremely stressed out since realizing that some of the things I had been told were not true and that I now had to move out of the home they provided me and figure out how to live on the income that was realistic. I told them that other sales people there had told me things that scared me and made me realize it wasn’t the job I thought it was going to be. I didn’t name names but I do know the one manager did not want me around any other salespeople after that. I really am confused and like I said just wish they would have told me why. I could prepare a better defense if I knew exactly what their reason was. Thanks again.

Virginia currently has up to 86 weeks of unemployment at this time. That doesn’t mean you’ll qualify for all 86 weeks, or that you have enough money for 86 weeks.
