Can I receive unemployment benefits after turning down a job offer due to working conditions?
I have been on unemployment since February, 2010 in Nevada. I was just offered a position with 25% reduced salary, which I’m willing to do. However, after a plant tour today, I found out I would be working 10 hour days in freezing temperatures (it’s a food manufacturing plant dealing in frozen foods). Can I turn it down due to the working environment and still collect my unemployment benefits?
Before you go turning down the job I suggest you read how Nevada describes “suitable work” and what might make work “unsuitable”.
Oop!! went to get the page I had bookmarked for NV appeals and it’s disappeared .. they have a new website and if I thought it was bad before .. I really don’t have good news for you now.
