Compensation Reduction

Employer in Pennsylvania - Employee in Connecticut

Salary $63,000 cut to $30,000 without notice, paid bi-monthly - the reduced amount showed up in the bank.

A partner is sending $1,000 "make up" checks to the employee because he didn't agree with the paycut made by his other majority partner.

Employee wants to quit, but won't for fear of not getting unemployment. She otherwise works at home and is not subject to harsh workplace environment scenario.

Can the paycut be considered Constructive Discharge if she chooses to quit to get unemployment?

Does she have any cause of action if she stays?

She has no contract, has been back from maternity leave for 6 months, it is a small consulting firm with 6 employees total.
