Working while laid off

You will not receive an earnings-related allowance for any full days that you work for your employer while laid off. If your employer asks you to return to work with reduced daily working hours, your earnings-related allowance will need to be adjusted. More information about different types of lay-offs: Full-time lay-off Lay-off with a shorter working week Lay-off with reduced daily working hours If you start working part-time for another employer while laid off, you will receive an adjusted allowance. Please let your unemployment fund know if your employer asks you to return to work in the middle of a lay-off or if you start working for another employer. It is also important to tell the TE Office about your new employer.
