My company is moving my current job to another building about 20 miles away. My commute is already 40 minutes with no traffic, but based on the move, my new hours and other changes that took place. If I were to commute the mileage from my house to the new location is about 46 miles, but the travel time would be about 1.25-1.5 hours which is to far for what I make with that company. If I decline to go based on the distance, would I still be able to collect unemployment until I find a new job? Would they deny my unemployment b/c I resigned? I can not find a clear law on distance or anything related to my issue. Its seems like a common occurence so would would be good legal advice on this matter. I want to be employed but I can not do the commute for what I currently make b/c even with my current pay and commute which is not enough to support my current expenses b/c I already took a 70% paycut. The paycut was due to the new company not paying us commissions like we used to get which I understand I have no recourse on but the mileage plus the paycut makes this job cost me money to even come in.
Thanks in advance
