if your hours have been cut, you can collect unemployment benefits

Ask a Manager

You should know that if your hours are cut due to coronavirus (or for any other reason), you can file for unemployment benefits in your state. I’ve heard from some people who incorrectly believed they had to be fully unemployed before they’d be eligible for unemployment. While rules vary from state to state, that’s generally not true.

I think my coworker is lying about having a sick kid

Ask a Manager

A reader writes: If you were our boss, would you want to know this or I should I ignore it? I have a coworker who has a sick kid. He frequently needs to take time off. My other coworkers and my boss and I are always understanding. We have done his work when he is off, our boss advocates for his time off to be paid, and whenever he has asked my coworkers and I have donated our own PTO to him. I think he may be lying about having a child at all.

Ask a Manager

It’s five answers to five questions, and a sixth thing. Here we go…. My daughter’s managers complained to me about her work. My daughter is 19 but lives at home. She has had a full-time job at a local daycare center ever since graduating high school. I dropped by her place of employment the other day to tell her something. All three managers were in the front office. I smiled and greeted them with, “Hi. How’s it going?”

how do I deal with a boss who “yells” in angry emails?

Ask a Manager

A reader writes: I was hoping to get your advice on how to approach my boss about the way we communicate when he gets … shall we say, “easily agitated.” ” I report to a single manager (Bob) but routinely pick up projects for a number of other managers (all of whom who sit between Bob and me in the hierarchy). As we are rarely all in the office together, standard practice is for a manager to ask me to collate a report, draft a statement, etc.

the person who had my job before me won’t go away

Ask a Manager

A reader writes: How involved should a former employee be in current work? My predecessor, Gaius, had a terrible run in the director position, did a nightmarish job for 20 years, and finally retired two years ago. He neglected his duties, never finished projects, and left a disaster zone (literally, the fire marshall cited the area as a hazard). He emails me regularly with advice and on two occasions has sent very nasty emails to me.
