If an employee is place on administrative leave "without" pay

This answer was rated:

If an employee is place on administrative leave "without" pay for four weeks can that person find work at another job until his/her four weeks are up at their prior place of employment?
Good morning,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

Not only can a person seek other employment during their administrative leave, but as they have neither been terminated for cause, nor allowed to work, they may file an unemployment claim with EDD as well.

Filing with EDD will require them to seek full time employment during the time they are receiving your unemployment benefits, but as that is something they are already considering, they might as well file for benefits while they look for other employment.
