Worked 3rd shift, found out my shift ended. Can I get unemployment as dislocated employee if they offer another shift and I have commitments?

Q) I was working 3rd shift and just found out last night during my shift that they ended 3rd shift effective last night. Can I get unemployment as a dislocated employee even if they offer us to go to another shift? I have other commitments during the day that would keep me from going back to a day shift. I left the day shift and went to 3rds over 6 months ago.

A) You will not be able to claim unemployment benefits if the company offered you a replacement job. If you are offered another job on a different shift and the job being offered is considered “suitable employment.” you cannot claim unemployment even though the hours conflict with your personal commitments. A job with overly demanding physical requirements or too low of a wage (as compared to your physical condition or previous job experience) likely would not be considered suitable. A job that is just slightly less desirable than what you would like, or one that requires a somewhat longer commute – In those situations, you may have to either accept the offer, or go without unemployment benefits.
