Do I lose my unemployment benefits in California if I refuse a job that is 60 miles out of town?


(California)

Does the State of California take the location of a job offer into consideration when they determine whether a job offer is legitimate or not? I have been offered a job in a town that is 60 miles away from my home. Taking the job this far out of town would cause severe upheaval in my family situation and lifestyle because I would be commuting one-plus hours every day, which means I would be unavailable to help with transporting our children either to school in the morning or from school in the afternoon. As a result, my wife would have to quit her job in order to make sure that our children and their schedules were adequately accomodated.



Hi,

Yes they do consider time, distance, and travel as a part of what is "suitable work".

Here's some information for "California"
