If I refuse to work for the lowered salary and commissions, can I collect Unemployment Benefits? Answer: Dear Rob: Many, many people worldwide are having their compensation cut, and so I am receiving many questions like yours. Unemployment Benefits are provided to people who have either (a) lost their job without fault of their own, or (b) resigned with a truly good reason. P.S.: Applying for Unemployment Benefits can be confusing!
