That is incorrect. An Employee
is defined by the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina as "A full-time or part-time worker as defined under common law rules for determining employer-employee relationships." Therefore, she IS eligible for benefits. She can estimate the underemployment amount she would get (and file) at the link below:https://www.ncesc1.com/individual/EstimateBenefits/ESTBenefitsMain.aspWhether the employer is simply mislead in his own understanding, or is misleading the employees - we do not know - but she is eligible, and should apply if needs to.
