Gerry,

NO!! File for partial unemployment.

If you quit this job .. you could be denied any benefits you fought for unless you proved you quit the job with good cause.

It is the last separation that controls whether we get benefits.

Partial benefits may be available for you when you work less than full-time. You can see for yourself how New York partial unemployment benefits are calculated by accessing the resource on this page
