Am i entitled to social welfare if ????

Hi all ,

Just a quick question as to if i would be entitled to social wefare or not.

I was working full time in a company for nearly 5 years , i was let go and had to get other work , the only work i could get was work in a hotel which started off alright , i was getting 3 days per week and was coping alright , there is no longer 3 days available , only 2 . my nett is lower than the basic social welfare payment(even before i factor in travel to and fro from work). if i "LEAVE" this job and go to sign on , will they run me out the door or am i perfectly entitled to sign on .

any feedback would be amazing as im holding off talking to my manager untill i find out .

Im gonna try negotiate more days off him but if he says no , i will have to go down the social welfare route .

thanks in advance

If you were working three days and available and seeking work you should have been claiming already for the other three, you are only a casual worker
SW week is six days

You are entitled, get in there and sign on, you are working two and you claim for four.
You should have been doing this already. Try to back date but I doubt they'll allow it. But worth a try,nothing to lose
