A) Yes, you may be eligible to collect partial unemployment benefits if your work hours have been reduced. Each state has its own rules and regulations for unemployment benefits, so you should contact your state’s unemployment office to determine your eligibility and how much you may be eligible to receive. Be sure to provide them with all the necessary information about your employment and your reduced work hours.Again if you have become partially unemployed you can apply for unemployment benefits.
