California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
If I were to receive zero hours per diem and unemployment were to hypothetically believe the change of hours is due to no fault of my own would I receive benefits?
The problem is I was told by previous management that the change of schedule would not be a problem. Management changed 2 months ago and now that is not the case. So what I am really trying to know is if I accept the per diem shift and forgetting the fact of school would I receive benefits if they do not give me any shifts. As I was told that hours would probably be far and in-between. He also gave me the option of being laid off to help me obtain benefits, would that be possible? Sorry for so many questions but he wants an answer tonight
