Nevada Unemployment If You Get Laid-off

Generally, in Nevada 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.

I worked for my company for 9 years. I was injured on the job and can no longer perform the demanding duties of my position. My company laid me off. I can still work. Can I collect unemployment until I find another job?

The company I work for is going to layoff all the workers but is requiring we agree to be in an “on call status” for reduced hours. If I refuse to be in an “on class status” does this disqualify me from any unemployment benefits?

The company that I've worked for many years is closing. A new company has made the employees verbal offers that they will hire us at the same hourly wage with benefits yet to be presented to us down the road when the transition occurs. In essence the new co. wants commitments from the employees now for their scheduling requirements. This is understandable. They have given us a deadline to apply now months before their operation begins. If we don't apply now we loose our pay scale and will be lumped in with new hire wages and benefits. The new co. is taking apps. now and will present us with a written offer of employment pending drug test etc. near the change over. Since this is all based on a verbal offer and even if a written offer of employment is presented it still may be vague, can I reasonably think that my unemployment claim will be approved. I can probably expect that the co. that I currently work for will notify the State Department of Human Resourses of the new companies' offer of employment. My co. automatically denies all unemployment claims.
