The first resume is always the hardest to write, there's usually just not that much you'll be able to put on there. I have faced some bad experiences in preparing resume. Thanks.

I am currently recieving partial unemployment in California due to lack of hours. An HR representative at my work offered me a full-time position as a lead (supervisor). This position requires alot of commision sales and other duties that I have no experience in. Overall the job is undesirable. What would happen if I declined the position? Will I loose my unemployment benefits? Thank You.

Do u know of any case law in KENTUCKY where someone got their unemployment when they tried to switch shifts at work to keep from losing their job due to no childcare on their 3rd shift but then the employer said they couldn't switch with someone who also wanted the switch? i got my referee hearing in TWO WEEKS and my employer is fighting it. Said it's cause I have no childcare and that I don't qualify to get the benefits but i am trying to make it attributable to them so I can get them. I have to make it attributable to them. If they say I reduced my hours solely due to no childcare....I'll not get it. But, it's not that cut and dry but I really need to find some case similar to my situation to maybe use as a basis for my claim at my hearing in 2 weeks. They always made us find our replacement for our vacation days and this woman did cover me on my vacation and sick days.....she worked my shift almost 100% of the time when I was off, literally! Her normal shift is full time on days, 1st shift. She said if i ever needed to switch permanently that she wanted my shift. So I said I wanted to when I got custody of my daughter because I had no childcare while I was at work on 3rd shift. That way I could keep my job and still care for my daughter at the same time....so I'd not lose my income or benefits that way. But, the boss THEN steps in and said we couldn't switch. Said the other woman had to remain on 1st because she was not "suitable" for the 3rd shift.....even though she ALWAYS covered my 3rd shift when I took vacation and sick days. They said covering ....when they had no other choice except to let her was different than her working it full time. So, for whatever reason....she's not wanted on it all the time. I think that helps make it part their fault now and not just solely about my not having childcare on 3rd shift. But if I can find case law similar to this where someone did get their benefits when the employer refused to allow them to switch to another shift....then I'll stand a WAY better chance of getting mine to go through. If you could ask around....maybe tell the details of my story...someone might know a way for me to get....if you don't care to. My hearing is in 2 weeks and I have to have my documents and evidence and case law precedents completed by the end of this week though in order to give the other side time to review it and fight it. If you can help, or know someone who can, please let me know ASAP, Thanks.

I suddenly found out today that I have been fired. I left a job that I loved for this one in May and I am just now reaching the 90 day waiting period to be included on their insurance plan. The company's headquarters is in Alabama. I am in Arkansas. They provided no reason for my termination except that its just not working out. They provided me with a six page legal document that upon signing and notorizing= I will receive 3 weeks pay. So here are my questions:
- I have only worked their for 3 months...does this mean that I get a month and a half unemployment?
-Do I even qualify for unemployment since they are giving me severence?
-Do I need to apply in this state or in Alabama?

Please help. Thank you

I have worked for my employer for the past 2yrs. I having the next month that our location will close They have offered a position in another city which is about an hour and half from my home! Would I qualify for unemployment since they are giving me this option? My problem is I can't drive that far back and forth to work everyday! I would put more in gas than pay!!! Does anybody know if there is a mileage rule or something????

Rebecca, there is indeed usually a rule that determines how far away that you are required to accept a job offer. Contact your local unemployment agency and find out if they have a similar rule and what the specifics are.

I live in KY. I work full time at one job and part time (about 19-24 hours a week) at a second job. If I get laid off from my first job, will I get unemployment because I already have a second job?

I recently stepped down from a shift leader position due to my boss unfairly accusing me of doing things I didn't do. Now I am told that I will be receiving no hours on any schedule. Do I qualify for unemployment?

»

Vaapad, the best advice I can give you is to apply for unemployment benefits. I cannot say how they will rule, but you may be able to get something.

1. as a business owner, if i have to close my doors, can i qualify for unemployment?

2. as i have had to cut back hours, is there a such thing as getting support for going from full to part-time. what is the criteria? does this apply to my employees only or me too!!!

Unemployment eligibility varies from state-to-state; however, one general requirement is that you or your employer paid into unemployment while you were working. You should be eligible for unemployment, if you paid into into it while your business was booming. Check your local unemployment agency for more details. Also, many states will allow you to receive partial unemployment benefits based on the number of days you work in a week but, again, that is something you need to contact your local unemployment agency about.

Hello all:

I have a question that i'm hoping someone on this site might be able to answer for me. I've been employeed for the last 10yrs with the same company and as of late I feel that the company is forcing me to quit so I can't collect unemployment. The company has cut back on marketing, Service for my clients have dropped off, my tech dept that does my installs has dwindled down to hardly no one and my days are filled with angry client calling me up telling me how horrible the company I work for is. Just to give you a litttle back ground the company I work for has landed a major account 3 yrs ago and it appears that all the attention is on that account which I have nothing to do with. I feel like i'm on a desserted island with no help and have brought this to the attention of the owner of the company numerous times but have got no where with him. I'm focusing all my time on damage control with my client that i don't get any time to do sales which is my primary job function. My question to all is if I quit my job at this point will I be able to collect unemployment while looking for a new job.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Willam,
You are right. Unemployment is THE major issue. People should really consider starting a home-based business. We have created a section on this site called "Side Hustle". It will show you exactly how to start a home-based business and become an entrepreneur. You can visit the "Side Hustle" by clicking on this link http://www.thebeehive.org/jobs/side-hustle.

Unemployment is The Major issue now a days.I think people must start home based business.I will provide many benefits.

Beside this i need reapply with this company and be interview for the same postion i already have had for 5 yrs. Hours are be cut and wages are too. Will be able to apply for unemployment insurance?

Hello lpaloalto,
If you were terminated from you job, you could definately file for unemployment insurance. Unemployment usually doesn't compensate people who are working, but there may be other services in your area that can help you. Contact your local social services department to see if they provide assistance with utility bills, childcare, etc.

After working 14 years for a company in Michigan, I moved to south Florida. I moved to Florida because my wife accepted a great job position here and it seemed like an opportunity that we needed to pursue. It was my decision to leave the company I worked for, so it never really dawned on me that unemployment benefits might be an option. I've sinced discovered that relocation of a spouse is a valid reason to pursue unemployment benefits. Trouble is, I left my former job over 7 months ago. Am I still eligible for unemployment or is there a deadline for filing a claim?

hi jwrock,
unemployment benefits vary so much from state to state. contact your city's unemployment office and make an appointment to speak to a representative. this way, you'll be sure to get the correct information. you can start by looking at the local unemployment website. that should point you in the right direction.
