Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. Because I want to provide you with the most accurate answer possible, do you mind if I take a moment to review your question?
Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.
The answer to your question is yes; you can refuse part-time work from the same company generally. Unemployment insurance requires that you do not refuse any suitable employment offers. There's no legal definition for "suitable," but this generally means something that is similar to what you were doing and making before. In your case, even if the pay is the same, part-time hours usually mean you'll make 40-50% less than you were previously, so if you deny the job, it is likely you can keep your unemployment benefits.
Because I value your input, I would like to know whether you have any other questions for me today that I could help you with?
The pleasure is all mine! Unless you have additional questions, there’s just a few other things I’d like you to know before we wrap up this conversation:
