Answer: Dear Rob: Many, many people worldwide are having their compensation cut, and so I am receiving many questions like yours. However, (a) if business at your employer was slow, and/or (b) you were not given any guarantee of compensation remaining the same, and/or (c) you were not given any new responsibilities, and/or (d) you are being paid commensurate with others in your company and your industry, then you would have a good chance of being denied Unemployment Benefits. .
