Quitting part-time workRCW 50.20.050(3).

(1) Definitions. For purposes of this section:
(a) "Part-time work" means fewer than 35 hours of work per week.
(b) "Full-time work" means work of 35 or more hours per week.
(2) If you are simultaneously employed in a part-time job and a full-time job, you will not be denied benefits for quitting the part-time job under the following circumstances:
(a) You quit the part-time job before losing your full-time job;
(b) You did not know in advance that your full-time job would be ending; and
(c) You are eligible for benefits based on the separation from your full-time job.
(3) If you are denied benefits under RCW 50.20.050(3), the period of denial is the same as that under RCW 50.20.050 (2)(a). This means you will be denied for a period of seven weeks and until you earn at least seven times your weekly benefit amount in covered employment.
(4) Examples. The following are examples only and do not mean that the department would rule the same in similar situations.
(a) You quit a part-time job two weeks before being laid off from your full-time job. Benefits are allowed because you meet the criteria of subsection (2) of this section.
(b) You quit a part-time job before the hours at your full-time job were reduced. Benefits are allowed because you meet the criteria of subsection (2) of this section.
(c) You quit a part-time job two weeks before the end of a temporary full-time job. You had prior knowledge that the full-time job was ending. Benefits would be denied unless you had good cause for quitting the part-time job under RCW 50.20.050(2).
(d) You quit a part-time job two weeks before being discharged from the full-time job.
(i) If the separation from the full-time job was for misconduct, benefits would be denied for quitting the part-time job because you are not eligible for benefits based on the separation from the full-time job.
(ii) If the separation from the full-time job was not misconduct, benefits would be allowed because you meet the criteria of subsection (3).
(e) You quit the part-time job and the full-time job on the same day. The department will determine if you had good cause to quit both jobs under RCW 50.20.050(2).
(f) You quit a part-time job but are still employed full-time at your other job. The department will determine if you had good cause to quit under RCW 50.20.050(2).
