  • Can you collect if refuse a demotion ?

    Would I be able to collect unemployment if I was given the choice to take a an in house job with a decrease in salary of about 25% ? If I choose not
    to accept this "demotion" am I still eligiable for unemployment in New York
    State or do they "my Employeer" get the upper hand by offering me an
    alternative job? Or will this appear that I left on my own if I do not accept their offer.

    Please help... I am 6 months pregnant and can't afford to take the reduction.

    If you can't afford the reduced pay, what makes you think you're going to be able to afford to live on unemployment?

    You MIGHT be eligible for partial benefits to make up the difference if you take the job (you would in my state) but they're not going to pay you to refuse work so that you have NO income instead of SOME income.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
