State Of Wi Layoff/cut Hours Question Regarding Unemployment.?

Postby Seumas » Thu Oct 05, 2017 3:04 am

My company is holding a meeting today at 2 and it's been said that they're talking about cutting a day out of the work week (32 hours lost per month) and asking some to do a voluntary lay-off.


Financially the lay-off would benefit me more IF I can collect unemployment.
No matter what I cannot live off of 32 hours per week as my husband is in college and we have two kids in daycare.
Anyone know what my rights are here? If I do take the lay-off can I collect unemployment? Do I have to cut my hours if they try to make me?

Get a second job! My goodness, you want to ad to our already stressed out unemployment system? At least you are working and that is something to be humbled by and proud of.


It sounds like you don't want to work because unemployment benefits last about 90 days and are only 1/3 of your pay. Can you live on that? It would seem you make more money working by losing only 4 days per week.

If you want to quit, than do. But don't use this as an excuse to stay home and collect another taxpayer check.

I am not looking for a way to sit home and giggle about being paid to do it, FYI lady!

I am a mom of two in daycare and cannot afford to loose 32 hours a month (that's almost a weeks worth of pay) while paying for full time child care for a 9 month old and 4 year old! It would leave me in a better place financially to collect unemployment because I wouldn't go into debt (which I'm not in now thankfully) and I'd be able to keep paying my bills.
Get a life and don't judge.

definite, of course they are able to. it fairly is an staggering debt and it fairly is not correct in case you owe it to the government or to a credit card company. it could (and could) impression your credit status and in the journey that your tax return does not cover the overpayment, they're going to truly garner your wages or sources.

If you do the voluntary lay off, I don't think you can claim unemployment.
But if it is involuntary, then you can.
If you are classified a full-time worker, and they are shortening their work week, they are liable for the lay-off time if they did it without your consent.
If you consent, then you lose any claim to unemployment.

Check on the website; google Wisconsin Unemployment Insurance.
It will get you to their site, and they have all of the information that is needed, and you will be able to file a claim on there as well.

Good luck!!
