Bait & switch job with unemployment benefits.

What happens when you are on NYS unemployment, you get a job, show up for the first day, and find out the job situation was a bait & switch?
A friend went on UI recently in New York, in NYC. She interviewed and received a job where she was told the hours are flexible, the vacation & personal time was 2 weeks a year, and that there would be dental coverage. She went in for her first day today, and was told the hours are not flexible, there is a 90 probation period before she gets any time off, there are no dental benefits, and PTO is five days total, per year. If she doesn't go back, what happens to her unemployment benefits from her last job? Are the discrepancies in what she was originally told when she took the job a valid reason for not continuing with the new job, will this stop her current UI benefits?
