How do I file for UNDERemployment benefits in MI?

I am a dog groomer in Michigan. Today, my boss cut my work days from 5 a week to 3.

Our business is very slow right now. I usually groom 6 dogs a day, and I am down to 2 a day (from 30 dogs a week – to 6. Yes SIX.). That’s A LOT of lost income. Since, I make only commission, if I am not grooming – I am not making money.

So, since I am barely working part time right now… It’s going to be very hard to pay my bills.

How can I file for UNDERemployment benefits in MI?

I am looking for new work or even just a 2nd job, but out of the 20 resumes and apps that I have put in this last week… I haven’t heard back from a single one. I don’t want to be out of work!

Any advice?

  • Maybe somebody from Michigan will have a better answer or know more about your state.

    Usually in states that allow partial unemployment benefits the procedure for filing for partial unemployment benefits (what you are calling UNDERemployment benefits) is exactly the same as the procedure for filing for full unemployment benefits.

    Here is the info about Michigan Unemployment Insurance benefits:
