  • Suspension followed by demotion offer

    I was told I will no longer be a supervisor and then I got offered a position beneath the one I was in. My question is if I decide not to accept the offer does this mean I will be terminated or is it considered voluntary termination?

    Not enough information to say. If you want to post more details, we can try again. And we ask your state for a reason; it can make a difference to the answers you get since Unemployment is state based and I assume at least one of your reasons for asking is for unemployment purposes.
    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.

      And if you're not in the US, the answer will be completely different.

        The IP address is in US but we don't know if that is state where OP works - I lived in one state & worked in another.

          I live in Texas but work in Oklahoma. Basically was told I am no longer a supervisor and got offered a lower position. I was never told that I was terminated. They charged me of aiding an hourly employee to ride the clock when not at work.

            Since they have a performance-related issue on why they are demoting you, I would expect the employer to appeal any full or partial unemployment claim as a "for Cause termination/demotion" whether they immediately terminated you or whether you voluntarily resigned due to the demotion. I don't see where it will be to your benefit to quit. If you are unhappy with the demotion, I would stay just as long as it took to find another job.

              Agree. Your chances of getting UI benefits are better when you are terminated than when you quit. You can currently look for another job (if you want one) while you are still working.
