    I live in Michigan and boss told unemployment I quit when actually we talked and agreed to a layoff.

    took a 10% paycut, then business moved from 6 to 75 mile round trip. Then put on part time, 30 hrs, another 25% paycut. Then told to pay insurance premiums, another 10% paycut. This all in the last 2-3 years. Paychecks late off and on the last 4 months. 90% of customers gone as we have no money to buy product. Business living on credit cards and they are lowering limits. Both wife and I work there. I went to him and we agreed there is no money and no customers and no work for us. Unemployment about the same pay so we agreed to be laid off. Best for both he and us. Now he says we quit, Help...

    Just make the claim and if he denies it, then appeal.  He doesn't get the last word.  The state will have a system to deal with it and if you present the story as you have here, chances are you'll be able to collect your benefits.

    It might be important to know whether or not you were replaced after your termination. If you were not replaced that would support your case that you were laid off. If someone was hired to replace you that would weaken your case. Agreements between employers and terminated employees are not binding on the UIA. After a terminated employee applies for benefits the employer is sent a questionnaire about the circumstances of the termination. His answers and those of the employee on his application for benefits are what the agency bases its eligibility determinations on. Not on "agreements" between employees and employers. Based on what you said it sounds to me like you were laid off and should be eligible for benefits. Alternatively you may be eligible because the substantial cuts you experienced strike me as good cause for quitting attributable to your employer.

    Sorry for the delay in this reply.
