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


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.


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

Here's some information for "California"
