Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I am not sure you understood what i am trying to figure out.
I am currently employed but I wanted to know if I deny an offer from my current employer for a different position, can they legally deny my unemployment when my position is eliminated/laid off(they are using both terms). The position they are offereing requires I werk full time over the summer, which I can not, as I only work part time right now. Are there laws on this? What website could I look at them?
I am currently employed. My employer now is the one offering me this job but it has a different schedule than the one I currently have thats why I can't do the full time summer option of the new position(since I currently work part-time). I know I have to be able & looking for a job, I am already doing so now before my position ends. I hope I don't get to that point of being on unemployment. I am trying to make an informed decision about what to do.
So, they can't come back & deny my unemployment because I chose not to take the position thay are offering me now(same employer). When i was trying to research this, I was under the impression, that my employer can deny my unemployment if they offer me a position I deny before being laid off.
Is there somewhere, I can look up labor laws online, I can't seem to find the right website. I am trying to figure out what my options are before declining the position.
