I am a temp. placed in a different company to fulfill a contract. However the company offered me a job, but I do not like the companies policies, and procedures, I would never work for a company that does not care about their employees…so I called my temp agency and told them that for now I would like to stay a temp.(continue to work for the outsourced company) the Temp Agency said “Why don’t you want the job?” I told them that I do not want to work for a company that works 7 days a week, gives the employee off 1 day, then it’s back to 7 days again…You have to work 6 weeks to actually get 3 days off…Oh Boy- throw a dog a bone …I’m not saying that I won’t work for the company at all, I’m saying I would rather stay a temp, until the contract is up, or they don’t need me anymore, and then have my temp. agency find me more work at a different company—who knows, maybe the next assignment would be a company that I could work for permanently, possibly retire??? My question is, Can I collect unemployment if the company would decide to relinquish my employment, based on the fact that they offered me full time employment, and I turned it down, which i turned down based on their policies and procedures of how they work their employees…I feel that I should be happy about where I will work for a long time, and if working 7 days a week is their policy, I do not want the job…I do have a family, and a life outside of 40-48 hours every week. Why should I be penalized for where I do or don’t want to work??? Sincerely,
I’m right there with you, but since we are talking about unemployment benefits and temp work why don’t you tell me what state we’re dealing with here .. so I can do a little research into your question .. which is kind of different than the other questions and comments I get about temp work.
