You will need to file at the unemployment office. You should qualify.

Usually, you don't have to accept a job outside your normal commuting distance. If you commuted 30 miles from home to work and the job moved 30 miles in the other direction, you might have trouble collecting. But, on the other hand, if they moved 100 miles away, then you shouldn't have a problem.

Most likely, there is a state law which would cover this. The UC dept will tell you.it is usually based on distance from the one location to the other.

Maybe you can, depends on your state laws. Usually if it's less than 50 miles from their old site, you wouldn't be eligible, but would if it's farther than that.

If you apply, the unemployment people do contact your former employer for input, but the u.c. people actually decide if you are eligible or not.

You will most likely qualify for unemployment benefits. The rules vary by state, but quitting your job due to relocation normally qualifies. Some states have specific rules about how far the job was moved (ex. 60 miles). Your local unemployment office will be able to provide you with more information. Ultimately, the determination of whether you qualify for benefits is made by the unemployment agency (or perhaps even a court). The process typically works like this: you file for benefits and your employer receives the notice of your filing. Your employer may decide to contest benefits (ex. you quit, you were fired for cause, etc.). Often when a job is relocated, an employer will not contest benefits. If the employer does contest benefits, the unemployment office must make a determination based upon the information provided to it. You or your employer may appeal the decision.

check your unemployment office... the unemployement system varies from state to state but by and large decisions are made solely by them and based on their specific rules.
