I was on FMLA and return date of the 25th.  I work second shift and the child care taker got another job so wasn't able to watch til 3:30pm.  I was available for the required 38 hours a week but because it wasn't as flexible as the company wanted they asked me if I was willing to go down to 28 hours or less a week.  I did ask to be moved to first shift or transfer to another store but was denied.  I told them that I didn't want to go down to part time but I guess I had too longs they didn't feel my new schedule was flexible enough for full time.  They wanted a letter stating me going from full time to part time.  I gave them a letter on the 10th of the month while I was still on FMLA and it stating that I would go from full time to part time effective two weeks from my return from fmla on the 25th.  How the letter was worded my manager took it as my termination and I have written proof that she took my last day being the 3rd of the next month even though it should have been the 7th.  When I called to explain how the letter actually read she said that the effective date of me going down to part time was the 28th.  Because of me voluntarily stepping down to part time it is considered a quite but will I get benefits because they acknowledge that it should have been at least the 3rd but did it on the 28th instead?  Normally in a regular quit of a two week notice if they let you go sooner than it is involuntary is this considered the same that I gave a two week notice to step from full time to part time and they did it sooner than the two weeks?

If I voluntarily go down to part time and give a two week notice to go to part time but my employer decides to put me at part time sooner than the two weeks am I eligible for unemployment in WI?
Thanks for clarifying.

You can claim UI benefits if you're working part time. What date will be considered is something best answered by the labor dept in your state. You can consider applying.
