Can former part-timers collect unemployment?

by on
in Compensation and Benefits,Human Resources

Q. Our company received a claim for unemployment compensation from one of our former part-time employees. Are part-time employees eligible to receive unemployment benefits?

A. Yes. California law allows part-time employees to file an unemployment insurance claim with California’s Employment Development Department.

Under state law, individuals are entitled to benefits if they are out of work due to no fault of their own, as long as they are physically able to work, actively seeking work and ready to accept work.

An employer’s costs for these benefits may be reduced if the part-time employee has worked part time continuously for the same employer for more than six months and continues to work part time.
