Default Can you file unemployment if they cut your hours to 32 from 40

My employer is cutting my hours from 40 to 32. Can I apply for unemployment for the 8 hours IM short every week?

Are you kidding with this question? The answer is no, since even with reduced hours, you are still employed. Unemployment benefits are for people who have no employment -- as in zero hours.

As linden52 stated, the answer is no. You still have a job.

I know little about the topic...

I had a friend that taught in Public school and somehow would get unemployment each summer...

He said everyone did it that did not have tenure...

This was a few years back... can workers still receive unemployment for seasonal jobs?

Yes you can -
here's the link to the CA (I'm presuming you are in CA) unemployment department:
FAQ - Eligibility
It's very clear you are eligible for benefits as your hours were reduced and every little bit helps. I appreciate you staying on the job even though your employer cut your hours and hope you recover them eventually or find another full time positon.

You can file for them but based on the following link it looks like the OP wouldn't qualify for much, if any, in unemployment benefits.

If that never happened before, it'd typically mean either:
- Business is going down
OR
- You are on your way out

Either way, look for another job.

True enough but as I said, every little bit helps - also wanted to correct those that said the OP could not apply.

As I recall, it's a 10% rule. If your gross pay is reduced by 10% or more, you should file.

Or hours are being cut because of Obamacare. A lot of companies are maneuvering now to minimize its impact on their finances.
