Can I keep my unemployment benefits in California if I worked for 2 1/2 weeks and quit.
I live in California and was laid off from a job that I had for 2 1/2 years due to them being unable to “afford” me anymore. I immediately filed for unemployment and received a letter stating that I was denied due to them being unable to identify me. Worried about the money, I went out and found a full time PM shift job, making 1/3 less the money that I was making. I am also in school full time. I worked at the job for about 2 1/2 weeks (in the 2 weeks, I had been approved for unemployment benefits and was informed that if I worked only part time I would remain eligible for the benefits). I tried to get my schedule switched to part time, but the manager said they could not do it. I did not feel that I was properly trained for my position and went to the managers about it a few times, in which nothing was really done about it. I ended up quitting because of the schedule and I accepted an on-call job position elsewhere. I have a phone interview in a week with EDD about why I quit the job. Do you think that I’m still eligible?
