My employer "laid me off" for 8 weeks, with the supposed intent to bring me back. I can draw unemployment for this time period. They claim that they can call me in whenever they want, with nothing more than 24 hours notice. I understand that they can do this if they want to bring me back full time. The sticky part, is that they want to be able to do this once a week on their whims, and leave me to collect the "shortage" from unemploment.... This seems kinda shady to me, why the hell would I want to work one day a week for them, when I can just get paid the same for doing nothing? They can't really "keep me on the hook" like this, can they?
