I live in California, I am currently working but my employer just notified me that they will be “letting me go” because my school schedule for next semester conflicts with the time they need me to work. I told them that I would be more than willing to work in the afternoon because I can’t in the morning since the classes I’m required to take for my major are only available in the morning. Can I collect unemployment?
What were the conditions of hire when you took the job? Were you a student at that time?
In any case, put your request for accommodation into written form.
