I called of Xmas because I was having a miscarriage. Well now my employer has drastically cut my hours. I was only part time. I worked about 3 days a week. Now I am working for the month of jan 2 days every other week (only every other weekend). Would I qualify for unemployment. I live in ohio btw

He cut your hours because he's trying to get rid of you.  Experience tells me that, although you have a good excuse, it was probably the final straw.  Start looking for another job. I don't know about collecting unemployment on part-time hours.  Worth a shot I guess.

If you had been full time and had your hours cut that much, I'm sure you would qualify. Since you are parttime, I'm going to have to say I don't know but it's worth checking into.

You can collect unemployment if your hours are cut drastically. But I'm not sure what would be to gain if she was only part-time anyways.

What you are talking about is called underemployment, not unemployment

I am not certain but I have heard you can get edd support for being under employed. You should contact the office.

You should also tell your employer what happened and provide a medical note if you have one. They are punishing you with the schedule and that is really crappy but they probably feel like you screwed them by calling off.

This is the first time I have ever called off and I have never received a write up since working here
