I have been in the company for 12 years with full benefits working 40-50 hours/week. In the last month the company suffered from low patient census that affected the company's bottomline.My status was recently change to PRN, i was told that I will be contacted if my services are needed and I will no longer be eligible to my benefits such as Paid time off.This drastically dropped my income and there is no guarantee if I will be called, when or how many days a week I will be needed.Are there any law that could protect people like me being manipulated by companies to avoid paying compensation?

It generally depends upon your state.some states, for instance, reduces your benefit the more you work. If your UI check is supposed to be $400/week and you worked that week for $250, you keep the first $25 and then subtract what you earned. In other words, your UI benefit will now be $175, not $400 for that week.

Other states may do things differently. They may base the UI on 40 hours @ min wage. Make more than that and no benefit... so check with the department that deals with UI and see what the laws/regulations are for your state. It very well could be that if you make too much one week, you might have to petition to keep that UI going. You might find that you may have to turn down a shift or work a shorter shift precisely to keep the UI active, as odd as that sounds.
