Laid-Off or Reduced Hours?

Layoffs usually come from a downsize or restructure of the company you work for. Depending on the type of business your employer is in, there may be many different buyouts. Some will reduce the staff and may put you in a situation of being laid off or even a reduction of hours. If you had your hours or wages reduced dramatically, you are actually partially laid off. Some people who have had this happen to them may not even know that they may be eligible for unemployment benefits.

Employer’s taxes increase when you are awarded unemployment benefits. Your employer may reduce hours or pay in an attempt to get you to voluntarily quit. Whenever you are presented with this type of situation, always ask for documentation showing your layoff status. You will bring this form with you when you meet with Unemployment Personnel. If you cannot get the documentation, ask your employer for a letter of recommendation. Show that letter to Unemployment Personnel to show them that prior to the layoff, your employer was satisfied with your work.
