Can someone apply for benefits if their hours are reduced?

Yes, they can apply, and our staff will then determine whether or not they are eligible for benefits. Working less than full time may still be considered unemployed depending on the amount the individual earns. If they are eligible, their weekly benefit amount will be reduced in accordance with the amount of earnings. It is important that claimants accurately report their earnings when filing their weekly claims.
