unemployment question

United States

#1 Sep 24, 2013
I currently work full time, 48 hours a week. I am considering taking a second part time job, about 5 hours or so a week.
The 48 hours job looks bleak, and could shut down at any time. My question is, if I take the 5 hours a week job, would that prevent me from signing up for unemployment if the full time job lays me off?
If so I need to steer clear of the 5 hours a week because there is no way that would pay the bills while I look for a replacement for the full time job.
Thanks for the input in advance.

Yes, it can prevent you from receiving unemployment. It's considered a job and you're receiving a pay check. If you get laid off and have the other job you couldn't quit the job to receive unemployment. You'd have to be laid off from the second job as well.

Well, that certainly sucks.

I doubt that it would considering you can get partial unemployment if your full time employer cuts you to 20 hours.

That's a good point uhm. Maybe I should just call the unemployment office and ask them.
