restaurant closed gave me the unemployment papers

my restaurant closed I filed a claim I cant work at the other stores right know due to husbands terminal cancer I am sole caregiver my restaurant was 5 minutes from my house the others are too far will I be denied unemployment.

Yes, very likely, you will be denied because you are not able and available to accept suitable work at this time and from the sound of it, the employer did offer you continuing work at a different store.

Although you failed to mention how far the additional distance would be .. aside from telling me it would take more than 5 minutes to get there.

You also didn't tell me which state which might be relevant if you were also only working part-time.

Are you sure you shouldn't of asked for a personal leave of absence instead of refusing a job?

I realize there may not be money coming in while on a leave, but because your situation has severely restricted your ability and availability to work .. benefits are unlikely as well.

2inuyrs away

But regardless Nancy, if you had followed the link to the unemployment law page, you would of also found the interpretation resource for Massachusetts unemployment.
