My wife has had her hours reduced from 30 to 8 a week. Should she quit?
My wife works at a very large retail chain as a sales associate. She was working over 30 hours a week forabout 16 months. Within the last 4 weeks she has worked 46 hours and is not scheduled to work for two weeks. No answers for why she isn't laid off. She has been asking for more hours to no avail. Yet they are still hiring people. Our baby is due in 9 weeks so should she just stick with it until she goes on disability, file for partial unemployment, or can she quit and receive unemployment?
No, I don't think I would quit. I'd file a claim for partial unemployment benefits.
If they are still hiring people, do you think the "reduction is hours has anything to do with her pregnancy? It's illegal to discriminate ..
I can imagine her hours being reduced because they hope she'll just quit.
I think i would even considering filing a complaint .. either with the EEOC or a state labor board if this has crossed your mind.
