I was hired in as fulltime , and now they are making me do on call on my off days. I don't think this is fair! I live in Cincinnati, OH . Because the business is slow I'm getting less hours or now hours. Can I do anything.

Thanks,
Capital

You can apply for partial UI. If you don't want partial UI, you can work on a good cause quit.

Simply put, working part time and collecting unemployment will not affect your benefits because you are underemployed, making less than what you had earned previously, and especially if you were told take it or leave it then you have to be given partial unemployment. You didn't ask for part time after working full time, and your benefits will be based on the last quarter of income. Depending on what state you are in of course does affect your benefit amount.

Normally, when you work part-time, CA deducts 75% of your gross earnings from the weekly benefit amount.

Let's say, CA says based on your previous employment, you are entitled to a benefit of $300 week (assuming you are now earning $600 wk [$15/hr x40hrs]).

You work 24 hours @ $15/hr, and earn $360. CA deducts $270 (75% x $360) from your WBA of $300. You receive $30. Not much compensation for a loss of $240.

However, in your situation, if CA can classify this as a true Partial Unemployment and/or Work Sharing claim, CA may use a different formula. From what I read on below links, you will need your employer's cooperation to possibly qualify for at least some partial remuneration for the hours you are losing.

Partial Claims

Partial claims are for employees whose employers want to retain them when there is a lack of work. EDD provides employers with a Notice of Reduced Earnings, DE 2063 or a Notice of Reduced Earnings (Fisherperson), DE 2063F for employees in the fishing industry. The employer completes the DE 2063 or DE 2063F to certify that the employee is expected to return to work, and gives the form to their employees, who use the DE 2063 or DE 2063F to file a UI claim.
Employees who use the DE 2063 or DE 2063F to file for UI benefits are not required to look for new jobs because their employer has certified that there will be a job for them shortly. These employees are considered "partially unemployed."
Employers can obtain the partial claim form, Notice of Reduced Earnings, DE 2063 or DE 2063F by:
The employees can contact EDD to file a claim for partial UI. They should be prepared to provide the following:
  • Name and social security account number
  • Mailing and residence address (if different)
  • Telephone number
  • Last employer information, including name, address (mailing and physical location) and telephone number
  • Information on all employers during the 18 months prior to claim filing claim, including name, period of employment, wages earned and how paid
  • Driver’s license or ID card number, if employee has either
  • Last date worked and the reason employee is no longer working
  • Citizenship status (which may include alien registration number)
If the Department needs to verify any of the information provided while filing a claim, additional forms will be sent by mail and additional information and/or documentation will be requested.

Partial Claims
Or:
Quote:
Any employer who has a reduction of production, services, or other conditions that cause the employer to seek an alternative to layoffs may participate in the Work Sharing Program. For additional information the following products are available on the Web site:
If you need additional information, you can call the Employment Development Department at:

Employers - (916) 464-3343
Claimants - (916) 464-3300

Work Sharing Claims
The CA UIBDG is not very clear on benefits provided under Partial Unemployment/Work Sharing.

When you contact EDD, be sure to clarify you have experienced an hours reduction and want a claim based on reduced hours, as per above, not a regular claim.

The alternative, of course, is to quit entirely. A substantial reduction in hours and pay is good cause for a quit.

An update on what has finally happened in your case would be appreciated.

What if this circumstance happened in New Jersey, and they hired a new full time for the same job description?

You'll get your UI. You can't make the employer chose you over the new person unless you have some union agreement that allows for bumping.

How much are your hours being reduced?
Are your benefits affected?
How long have you had this job??
If it is for less than eight weeks, did you quit your previous job?

If you've been employed less than eight weeks and have quit your previous job for this one, it is unlikely you will be able to do anything more than file for partial benefits. Even then, NJ may deny that.

If you've been there longer than eight weeks, then.....

Generally, what you do in this situation is write/email your employer, and say that you were hired to work full-time, that part-time hours are in violation of the employment contract when you were hired, they are effectively discharging you from your full-time job, and offering you "new work" on part-time basis, which you are refusing as unsuitable, and ask to be put back to full time. If employer responds no, then you quit, and file for benefits. Keep good documentation of this.

NJ defines suitable as:
Quote:
the definition of a "Suitable Job" is fitted to each person, depending on where he or she lives, his or her skills, experience and past salary.

http://lwd.dol.state.nj.us/labor/ui/claim/refusewk.html
A substantial change in the employment contract is grounds for a quit - but, first, you need to tell the employer you cannot accept this "new" work, and request they restore you to suitable employment and show that the change is sufficiently substantial as to be unsuitable.

Covered in this DOL, memo, here:
Quote:
First, the work must be suitable to the individual considering his or her previous wage and skill levels. Whether the work is suitable under this test is generally a matter of State law. (3)

Second, the work must meet the requirements of Section 3304(a)(5)(B), including the "prevailing conditions of work" requirement. As discussed below, the prevailing conditions requirement applies not only to refusals of work, but also to separations from employment involving a refusal of "new work."

It does not matter why the individual refused new work not meeting the prevailing conditions requirement; if the work does not meet the prevailing conditions requirement, compensation may not be denied.


Application of the Prevailing Conditions of Work Requirement
Since your employer has already hired someone else full-time to replace you, the "prevailing conditions" of work test has been met.

Read the entire memo. It is instructive.
