    Hi there,

    My employer wants me to sign a new contract stating that i am a part time employee (by Dec 1). I have been working full time there for over 3 years now. I have two questions.

    - Does this new obamacare plan have anything to do with this? I dont have any benefits there.

    - if i start working part time now, then they fire me next month, will i still be able to collect unemployment insurance? My wages from the past 3 years have been exactly $2700 per month (that is my monthly salary). I know the max UI in CA is $475 per week. Will this affect me if i get fired as a part time employee instead of a full time employee?

    And if it does not, any idea if i would get the max payout via UI?

    Your answers will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    1.) We have absolutely no idea why your employer is asking for this, but I can't imagine why it should.

    2.) Your UI benefit is determined by your overall wages throughout the last five quarters, not by your wage at the time of termination.
    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.
