will a person denied unemployment benefit  if he stopped two jobs as the same time?
if a person stop a job by himself  he will receive 3 weeks quarantine. Additionally,  the rule says  if he stop his job twice in the last 12 months he will  not eligible for unemployment benefit. My question is -
if he stopped two jobs as the same time , will a person denied unemployment benefit  ?
(which is treated the case as if he quit twice).

The rule about losing your Unemployment benefits in case you stop job by your self again within 12 months, only applies if you already have a current quarantine in your A-kasse.

The A-kasse will only give you 1 time quarantine (3 weeks), if you quit two jobs at the same time.

If you have a quarantine for self-inflicted unemployment and you are self-inflicted again within 12 months, you will lose unemployment benefits until you have 300 pay hours reported to the income register within a continuous period of 3 months if you are paid monthly or 276 pay hours within a continuous period of 12 weeks.

Best regards,
