If I got laid off from full time job but still work on call for different employer am I disqualified

I got laid off from my 40-hour week job. Simultaneously, i am an on-call worker for a retail store. I still work there but have been told that my on-call status with the retail (as opposed to part time status) will disqualify me for unemployment. Is that true? I'm in Massachusetts.

In Masssachusetts you are eligible for partial benefits.
This situation has been handled before in MA
Board of Review Decision BR-111378 (May 21, 2010)

"On-call, part-time benefit year employment did not disqualify the claimant from receiving partial unemployment benefits. He was entitled to those benefits as a result of his full-time base period job, from which he was laid off."

Contact the DUA and file for benefits. 617-626-6400
