  • Can my employee claim unemployment for cut in hours due to misconduct? Illinois

    I have an employee that was doing around 30-35 hours per week. As of the past 4 months, she has been rude customers (complaints), causing fights with employees, not following up with orders. The other boss tried to fire her, but she started crying uncontrollably to the point that he gave her a final chance, and put her on a cut of hours as a probationary period. Just recently she filed a claim for unemployment benefitis for IL due to this. We have given her many verbal warnings, and had her sign a 2nd written notice. This notice outlined all of this and her misconduct/inability to follow orders, which she signed, stating we are cutting her hours because of this, and that one more violation would result in termination. If we state these facts to the unemployment department, will she still be able to get unemployment benefits? We don't want our unemployment rate to go up, so we are trying to figure out how to tackle this claim form that IDES sent us, in our best interest. Thank you.

    There's no way we can shall whether she will or will not receive UI benefits -
    it's always the state's decision. Just tell the UI office the reasons for the
    reduction in hrs. as per your post above. The UI folks will then make their
    decision.

      Das ist in der Doktor!

      In a word,
      NO.

      The state has the final yea or nay,
      but I wouldn't bet the farm on her getting it if I were you..

        The bottom line though is the state always makes the final decision & that's
        the one that counts.
