Dirty Employer Tricks
by Justin B.
Just wanted to let everyone know of a dirty employer trick that is used to avoid paying unemployment. This is what happened to me. I was full-time with my employer. Then, instead of laying people off when business slowed down, the company kept cutting people's hours back until they had no choice but to quit. And since I quit because I was only getting a few hours a week, that disqualified me for benefits. I have heard from several people that this a common employer trick to get rid of employees without having to pay unemployment benefits.
