  • unemployment insurance - partial layoff

    Can employees who are on partial lay off qualify for partial unemployment?

    Do they look at the entire household income to determine or just ther person who is laid off?

    I work for a NFP. There are 20 ees. All but 4 of us have had our hours reduced by 20%.

    Now, if I apply, will UI just look at the hours I lost, or do they look at household income in determining my eligibility?

    Alot of the hourly employees are going to be greatly affected by this., I am exempt, but it is still a big chunk of change...

    Thanks.

    Depends on many factors, but it is certainly possible. However, a reduction of hours by 20% would suggest to me that you will still bring home far too much money in order to qualify.

    No, household income is completely irrelevant to the determination.
