Yes they can. I am a part-time worker and I have received a benefits letter after filing for unemployment.
Can Part-time Workers Claim Unemployment Insurance In Georgia? I Worked In A Clothing Store Since October 1984 And It Closed Today. They Gave Me An Unemployment Form - Separation Notice. Can I Receive Benefits If I Only Worked Part-time?
Not 100% sure about Georgia, but most states today will let you receive UI benefits if a part time worker. The stimulus bill of Feb 17, 2009 (ARRA) had this as a rule to help those in need. Check your UI web site to be sure.
