no being put on the schedule

I work in fast food and the shift varies and changes weekly.. anywhere from 2-4 days a week.. however, I have not been scheduled to work in over a month and a half.. they say they are training new employees so there is no room on the schedule.. I have not been let go but am not working. can i collect unemployment?





You may be able to, but I'd have to ask questions about what you were told when first hired and I'd also need to know what state it is .. in case you can only work part-time.

In any case, you should file for unemployment since they still consider you an employee, but have told you there is no work available at the moment .. that, would be a partial lack of work claim and entitle you to partial benefits, but of course, like I said the conditions of hire can have a bearing on the claim.
