My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: CA
My wife has been employed for three years as an admin at a large company. Originally she worked 5 6 hour days (30 hours total), with the birth of our second child she requested (and received) a change to 3 8 hour days.
We had hoped this would make her job to childcare expense ration palatable as I generally do not work days. That is not going to be the case come June and given the commute from Fremont to Oakland she will barely break even. She would like to quit her job and have UI benefits until she can find full time work closer to home. Does the "good cause" clause concept here?
Edit: FML has been exhausted.
Edit 2: It may also be relevant that she went in to resign at the end of her FML, they offered this alternate schedule and she has been doing it for 3 months. My no longer being available to keep our two boys during the day is the big change.
