Maryland Unemployment If You Get Laid-off

Generally, in Maryland you have to have lost your job through no fault of your own in order to collect unemployment. When you get laid-off, it is not your fault.

In almost all cases, this means that if you get laid-off, you are eligible to collect unemployment benefits.

If you get laid-off from your job, you should immediately apply for unemployment benefits.

Getting laid-off doesn't mean that you were fired. Getting laid-off doesn't mean that you did something wrong. Getting laid-off means that they company that you worked for did not have enough work for you to do, and could no longer afford to pay you to do your job.

My boyfriend got a new job and had reduced his hours at his current job to one day a month. He worked at his new job for 2 weeks and was laid off on Monday. Would this situation be eligible for unemployment benefits? Even though he is still employed at his old job for one day a month?

I am a heavy equipment operator for grading crew.I get laid off every year due to the ground freezing in the winter/and bad weather. I was wondering if there was any way to see how much i will make on unemployment before i get laid off. My job is garenteed back after winter/better weather so there is no need for me to look for another job whle laid off.
