The Social Security Act of 1935 created a federal-state system of unemployment compensation which permits the states to establish their mvn standards of qualification for unemployment benefits. All states have enacted statutes pursuant to this system and have established three basic conditions which a claimant must meet before he is entitled to benefits. First, he must be unemployed. Second, he must remain able to work and available for work. Third, he must be free from disqualification for such acts as voluntarily leaving work without good cause attributable to the employer or employing unit, discharge for conduct connected with the work, or refusal of suitable work.
