Who qualifies to get unemployment benefits?

I live in upstate New York and all I have heard is that I have to be fired to collect. I work in a pretty hostile enviroment right now, the owners are getting divorced, I was just passed over for a raise and the new girl got salary, about 20k more. This is a restaurant, banquet house that opened last June, and I have been here since July. I have worked my butt off, wearing many hats and have quite a few people who will vouch for all the work I have done for this place. What can I do? I hurt so bad for being used one more time. I am the office administrator and incharge of personnel and payroll. I signed a confidentiallity agreement. Is that going to mess me up?
