  • MA Unemployment question

    The business I work for has "slowed down" quite a bit recently. My employer was recently talking about reducing me from full time (35 hours) to either 25/30 hours per week so I could still stay on. I have worked the full time schedule since I started on September 27, 2004. My question is - if I drop to less than a full time employee, is this going to effect my eligibility for unemployment benefits when the ever-looming layoff occurs? I have heard that if you are not a full time employee, you are not eligible to collect benefits in MA (i think the 25-30 hours/week is only going to last for a month or so until he finally has to lay me off until things look up)

    Chances are that it will reduce the amount of your benefits. You can read about it at:
