When is reduction in pay good cause to quit?

Short Answer: In Michigan, there is no clear benchmark in which a reduction in pay becomes good cause to quit attributable to the employer and the former employee would be entitled to unemployment benefits.

If you do quit because your pay was reduced, you will probably have a hard time getting unemployment benefits unless there were additional considerations such as discriminatory practice or, possibly, the reduction in pay alone is intolerable because you have high expenses.
