    Will unemployment benefits be denied if I refuse an offer that could be suitable but 62% less pay?

    I was employed at a company as a staffing specialist. I was on a medical leave for 4 months and when I was ready to return, I was informed that my position had been back-filled since I'd been on an extended medical leave and basically my position had been eliminated. I filed for unemployment benefits the next day. Today I received a letter from my employer that they have a temporary front desk position paying $9.50/hour but there is a possibility that the position could turn into a permanent position. BTW, I performed this position when I first started and was paid $11.50/hour.

    It might depend on your US State. In Ohio, you must accept any employment offered if you are receiving UI (at least it was so 5 years ago), but it's difficult for UI to discover the offers since you report to the UI office only occasionally and send info through the Internet. If the former employer offers you work, though, that's reported to UI in Ohio. If you lived in OH, you'd have to take the $9.50 and try to take the employer up in wage. I wish the best for you.

    I forgot to mention, but I live in Michigan. I thought I read that if I were offered work, it even if it were suitable, it would have to be a certain % of my previous gross wages.

    An offer for 62% less pay would not be considered a "suitable" offer in Michigan. Sorry for the long delay in answering your question.

    you do not have to take less than you were making at your previous job. Good luck, not much out there.....that's why I am going to Hub!
