does one have to accept a much lower paying job from ones employer when....
Posted 13 February 2013 - 01:39 AM
I will file an unemployment application, I'm concerned if I refuse this offer of a lesser paying job (less by 40%), I will be denied unemployment compensation. I'd prefer unemployment compensation for a month or so while I'll try to find employment so I can support myself
My soon to be ex-employer is a Kansas based privately owned corporation company doing business in California.
Thanks ahead of time for your comment[s]

As a general rule, employers are permitted to run their business as they see fit (including eliminating positions or even outright termination of employees) so long as such action is not in violation of the law. In an at-will state (you can quit at any time, the employer can fire you at any time) employers are not required to provide alternate placement for workers who have their jobs eliminated.
Are you claiming that the actions of your employer were based on some discrimination on their part?

"I'd prefer unemployment compensation for a month or so while I'll try to find employment so I can support myself"
That doesn't make a ton of sense, unless 40% of your old job is far less than unemployment benefits.
"My soon to be ex-employer is a Kansas based privately owned corporation company doing business in California."
Not relevant where the employer is "based".
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
