Will refusing to quit school result in denial of benefits? maryland

by Anonymous

I was asked the question if I found a job would I be willing to quit my schooling. My answer was no, I explained to the worker that I would first try to adjust my school scheduling around my job (which I have done in the past) or I would look for jobs that work around the times that I attend classes which I only go to on Monday nights at 7pm to 9:30pm and Wednesdays and Fridays that start at 9:00 am to 11:00 am both days.

Hi Anonymous,

This would be an issue that deals with your availability for full-time work.

I'm referring you to the Maryland unemployment decision digest. You'll want to look under the "Able to work" section and then personal reasons which include schooling. They may deny you unemployment if they think you are limiting your availability for full-time work. If they do it's certainly worth an appeal to emphasize what you said about first trying to resolve a conflict by adjusting your school schedule to the job.

See Nonmonetary Table 5-12 for a state by state listing of treatment of students with regard to unemployment benefits.
