What would you like to do?
If you have two jobs and are fired from one of them can you collect unemployment in New York State?
Yes, you may. If you had qualified, based on the higher paying job and lost that one, then according to the Related Link below, page 9 under "What if I work part time?", if you work less than 4 days and earn less than $405 for the Week, you may be entitled to partial unemployment benefits. They consider your total pay during the base period to arrive at the benefit amount, then re-adjust based on your current income.

YES, provided the unemployment benefits are properly yours.In other words, that you worked and made the proper contributions from your income to the state fund. Having a sta…te pension is no conflict.
It depends on why you were fired. If it was through no fault of your own, then most likely you could. The reasons are what's important, not the fact that you were fired.

If you quit your job in New York state because of husbands job transfer to Georgia can you collect unemployment if you can not find a job?
No, I don't think so. You quit a job and that is why I say you can't. Check with the unemployment office.
If you had two jobs and got fired from one and quit the other can you collect unemployment insurance?
First, on the job you quit. Unless you quit for allowable reasons (harassment, working conditions, discrimination, etc.) you would not be allowed unemployment benefits. Second…, as to being fired, it depends on the basis for being fired (justified, employee caused problem, theft, violation of company policies (that are allowed), etc.). If for those kind of reasons, then no, also. However, if being fired was through no fault of your own, then the other rules for unemployment criteria apply, such as length of work time in basis period, amount of earnings, is employer one in the category liable for unemployment, was the basis for your pay hourly or salary (as opposed to 100% commission or independent contractor, etc.) Because each state has its own rules for all the above, you need to check with your state's unemployment office for qualifications.
According to page 4 in the Handbook in the Related Link below, depending on your qualifications, the maximum weekly benefit is $405.
Unless there are some special circumstances, if you are fired because you refused to accept a new position, then no you cannot collect unemployment. By refusing you gave your …employer just cause to let you go. It is not the same as if you were laid off because of downsizing. In New York, you are what is considered an "At Will" employee. That means that an employer doesn't need at reason to let you go but in this case you would have given them one. Take the demotion (and i assume lesser pay) and start your hunt for a new job. At least this way you'll have money coming in.
How much can you earn on a part time job and still collect Unemployment Insurance in New York State?
If you work less than 4 days a week and earn less than $405 per week you may still collect partial unemployment benefits. See page 9 in the Related Link below.
Yes, as long as you initially qualified for them and comply with the terms of New York's requirements to continue receiving them.
You can't collect unemployment in New York if you are out on strike, for 49 days. You can collect it sooner if: 1) the labor dispute ends and you're still unemployed, or 2) th…e employer hires a replacement worker. See the Related Link below, the Handbook, page 11, item *3, for more details.
I would imagine the answer would be no as you would still be employed and you can't be both unemployed and employed.
