This may be helpful for non-Marriott hotel employees, who are being put on ZERO HOUR SCHEDULES:
- Restaurants, hotels, and other companies across the US are laying off workers or severely cutting hours as the coronavirus pandemic cripples business.
- Some companies are cutting workers' hours down to "zero hour schedules" instead of laying them off.
- Some of these zero hour schedule workers say their employers told them they're not eligible for unemployment benefits — but experts say that's not true.
- The only requirement for unemployment benefits is that a worker has zero earnings in the prior week and the employer didn't offer any hours, according to Andrew Stettner, a senior fellow at The Century Foundation.
