Duties changed, hours changed, schedule changed... really.
Ok my name is Bob.
I work full time 5days a week, I work well and have no lingering or evident problems with anyone at work or my performance. I actually got an employee of the quarter recently. My position is now available because i am being demoted. The demotion is because of continuation classes I haven't taken, but over the years i have worked there, the issue was never stressed until recently. I was hired years ago with my employer knowing of my lack of classes but I still could perform all tasks competently if not better than co-workers who've got their classwork up to date.
I am being asked to change my duties, let's say from a manager(not manager but dont want to be too detailed) to janitor. Same wage, but about 8-10 hours less per week schedule that conflicts with my kids (after i've had my set schedule for years) and basically as mentioned before a big demotion.
If i were to quit from that situation am i still able to collect unemployment? Or my option is to not accept the demotion and not quit, but i will either be fired or just not be scheduled to work.
Oh no you don't Bob and I mean side skirt what's really
important to know.
Let's first focus on the continuing education requirements the employer expected of you and if there was some "specific" or even "legal" reason for it.
And then, if so, why you refused to comply, before we even begin to discuss if the employer's action of demoting you, reducing your hours and therefore your remuneration rate .. might give you good cause to quit.
Nothing like leaving out the most important information when you want to know if you have good cause to quit .. which is where I'm moving this question .. even though I'm not taking new question at this time.
