how do reduced hours leading up to a layoff affect unemployment benefits?

My wife was recently told her hours will be reduced by 20% and her job is only secure until September. Say she gets laid off in September, will her unemployment benefits reflect her normal salary, or her reduced hour salary? I imagine she can't be the first one to have this situation happen, and it seems only fair to me her unemployment benefits should reflect her full salary if she does get laid off.

Does anyone know how this might work?

well how long has she been working. I work construction so a whole bunch of people go on unemployment when winter hits (not me though i went to school)

They said that if they grossed at least 1400 or 1600 every 2 weeks then they automatically qualified for the highest unemployment they could get. They also said that after like 5 months of working they put the max that the unemployment insurance was allowed to take off so they stop taking it off every check.

So this is in alberta, canada. If it's the same where you are and she has been working for more than 5 months she should be fine because they are not even taking EI insurance out of her checks anymore.

here in wisconsin, milwaukee county - no, that 20% reduction wont affect her benefit. what they do is look at your work history for the past 18months...... EXCLUDING the most recent 6 months. essentially the 1 year of work history prior the most recent 6 months is what counts toward calculating the benefit. dont know about other states/regions tho


so, if starting today she has reduced income from now thru september = aprox. 3 months, therefore(if she is laid off in september) the time from 3/2010 - 9/2010 would be excluded from the calculations
also, as soon as she is sure about the date the layoff begins, have her call immediately to start the claim process to shorten her wait for the checks to start rolling in

minor differences of this concept are pretty norm in the states.

google your specific states unemployment office and they'll list the details of how it is calculated

yea, im pretty sure they do this to prevent fraud by being a "job jumper" someone who works a couple weeks at a time to collect 1 paycheck, then calls unemployment to start claiming with some excuse about not being able to work
