Q) I was recently let go and told to sign up for unemployment.But,I am trying my best to stay and work a different building.i am full time and may be called back.Would I be able to sign up for partial unemployment if I can work part time?Thanks for any answer

A) Your State law will determine if you are eligible for partial unemployment benefits. Generally speaking, however, an employee will be eligible for benefits if all of the following are true:

You are underemployed, meaning that you are working part time through no fault of your own. For example, if your company cut the hours of everyone in your department in order to avoid layoffs, you would likely meet this eligibility requirement. You may also be eligible if you lost your full-time job and have only been able to find occasional or limited part-time work. Depending on your state’s rules, you may be eligible for partial benefits if you had two part-time jobs and lost one of them. However, regardless of how your state determines eligibility for partial benefits, you will not be eligible if you could be working more. For example, if you voluntarily chose to reduce your hours or work part time so you could take care of your children, you would not be eligible.You must meet your state’s minimum earnings or minimum hours worked requirements. These are the same whether you apply for regular or partial unemployment benefits. Source: https://employmentlawfirms.com/Eligible-for-Partial-Unemployment.cfm
