Will I lose my unemployment benefits if I quit my part time job?

I acquired a part time job while receiving unemployment benefits. I was told my hours would be 16-20 hours a week. I’ve been getting 8-4 hours for the past month. Can I quit that job and still gets my unemployment benefits?

    That’s a question for the workforce development folks. I believe you would be able to keep your benefits since you have been collecting all along. However, they may not take the news that you quit our job too lightly. I hope you quit because of conflict of interest like school or some other responsibility that was more important than a job. Quitting because you didn’t like the job won’t sit well.

    Yes, quitting will impact your unemployment IF you worked for them 30 days
    You can still claim UI benefits while working
