  1. I am trying to file my weekly certification and my pin will not work. I also have tried changing it and cannot get through. Please respond as soon as possible.

  2. You can bring to the unemployment office a list of jobs you have applied to along with your termination letter from your last job if you have one.

  3. You must have wages in at least two quarters of your qualifying period (base period). The base period is the first four quarters (12 months) of the last five completed quarters from the date your claim is filed. For example, if your claim was filed effective October 5, 2002 your base period would the 12 month period beginning July 1, 2001 and ending June 30, 2002. The total of your base period earnings must equal or exceed one and one-half times your highest quarter earnings. The average of your two highest quarters must equal or exceed $1157.01.

  8. A bond guarantees payment for losses caused by failure to uphold a contract, perform work or dishonesty. The insurances industry deals in surety bonds. You can do a Google search and find lots of companies that issue bonds, or search the yellow pages. After finding the company and the type of bond that would work for you, give them a call and request an application.

  46. I have recently signed up for unemployment. While signing up I was asked if I had a disability. The appropriate question was not offered for me to answer concerning this. A few years ago I was on disability for my back. Tennessee took several people off disability and I was one of them. I have been working as a security guard for 7 yrs and was laid off. This is the only kind of work that I am able to do and I am worried that if a job is offered to me and I am unable to do it, my unemployment will be cut off.I want to work, but this is the only type of work that I am able to do. Also I am a veteran,but when signing up on line,the question “Are you a veteran” was not offered,so I had to click that I was not a veteran. I didn’t know what else to do. I go to the VA hospital for my medical care and my doctor has said that I am disabled. I even have have a disabled tag on my vehicle. Please respond as soon as possible because I am very concerned. Thankyou.

  47. Recommend that you visit your nearest unemployment office and speak with a counselor regarding your situation. The options that you seek on line perhaps are not being found because of the uniqueness of your situation. Remember to bring with you your disability diagnosis from the VA hospital

  62. Hello. I filled out the last time card for the amount of money in this claim but the claim is active for six more monthes, until June 2014. I read that extensions will be cut off Dec. 28,2013.

    Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.

    It has been a week now and I have not been contacted about approval
    for UI. I filed to certify online on 12/13//2013.

    What is the next step?

    Thank you. Sheila

  67. According to the Federal Department of Labor website you can expect your first unemployment check two or three weeks after you apply so long as you have submitted all of the required information. For some states there is usually a waiting period of one week between the time you become unemployed and when you are eligible for benefits. This means you won’t receive an unemployment check during the first week you are out of work.

    You can also call or visit your local unemployment office and speak with a counselor regarding how long it will take to get your application approved. Once approved you will get a notification in the mail with instructions on how to certify during the weeks you are out of work.

  68. Your local Unemployment Office would have a copy of your work history. I would recommend that you call or visit your local unemployment office and speak with a counselor regarding getting a print out of your work history.

  69. How long does unemployment last?.. I ‘ve worked at my job or almost 18 years . Told I am getting laid off the first of the year.

  70. A claim is effective for one year. During the year, claimants can receive from 12-26 weeks of full benefits. The number of weeks varies, based on total earnings during the base period (an individual’s earnings during a 12-month period). During periods of high unemployment, additional benefits may be granted by Congress, or your State Legislature.

  71. I just lost my job due to running out of fmla. i will be getting some disability, but does not cover my wages. i am not sure if i will beable to do this type of work again. and will be off for a number of weeks yet before i could look for work. do i also qaulify for unemployment?

  72. You cannot collect disability and unemployment benefits at the same time. Either you are physically able to work and can collect unemployment, or you are unable to work and can collect disability. You cannot be both able to work and unable to work at the same time.

  73. Eligible if you quit your job? I am a teacher and due to surgeries, I have a weak immune system. I am around sick students and am at a health risk at my job. I am no longer a fit for this type of work. If I quit, would I be eligible for unemployment compensation?

  74. I have collected unemployment before and need to again. I filled out everything online and im waiting for an answer. Im being told by several people that there is a class i need to register for? what is this class?

Please call or visit your local unemployment office and request information on the specific class you need to take in order to get your unemployment benefits.

  77. I am getting laid off next month , however I am considering retiring in April . Will my retirement effect my unemployment or Social Security?

  80. No. Your benefit should not stop if you go to Real Estate school.

  90. I have not received benefit payment yet.It has been 3 days from calling Marvin. getting direct deposit and can not get through on 1-866-500-0017

  91. IF you cannot reach your unemployment office by phone you may need to visit your local unemployment office in person.

  92. My employment was terminated. I’m being given severance checks until April. Do I file for unemployment benefits now or in April?

  93. It all depends on the state in which you live as each state administrates their unemployment benefit program differently.

    For example: According to CA Department of employment “Severance pay is not deducted from unemployment insurance benefits and does not affect your eligibility to receive benefits. The method of payment, such as a lump sum payment or payments paid to you at regular pay period intervals does not change the nature of the payment. However, you must report severance pay at the time you file your unemployment insurance claim.”

    I suggest that you call or visit your local unemployment office and speak with a counselor. You can also check your state Department of employment website for Benefit Eligibility information.

  94. I suggest that you call or visit your local unemployment office/Career Center where you took the test and speak with a counselor regarding “get a copy of my work keys”.

  99. I am a first time applicant. I finally received an email back from the local state office. A rep confirmed that I should qualify and told me to follow the links in their website. I cannot get anywhere with it. I cannot get through to any one through the automated system, nor will the site allow me to apply through it. I cannot find an actual State employment office to go to in person. I am wondering if the injury I experienced back in 2008, causing me to miss miss the 13 consecutive weeks as their site questioned in the application process;if I will also not be able to come apply to the state employment dept’s. local affiliate? I have all the information the states site needs regarding 2008. trying to avoid going to my local career center, wait a few hours and be told I cannot apply with the c. center; unless it is a necessary step. I just lost a job that I worked full time for over 2 years. Any guidance/ answers would be much appreciated. First timer!

  100. I’m currently receiving unemployment benefit but will be working on Feb 4th as a temp what do I need to do?

  101. Each time you file a weekly claim for benefits, you must report if you performed any work or earned any money during the week you are claiming. You must report the total amount earned before deductions. It must be for the week in which the work was performed even though you may not have been paid for the work at the time you file your weekly claim.

  102. I am currently on workmans compensation. I would like to know if I am eligible for full or partial unemployment benefits at the same time.

    Regards,
    Bruce L. Semke II

  103. You cannot collect both programs at the same time. In order to collect Unemployment Insurance Benefits you must be able, available and actively looking for work.

  104. I recently put in for unemployment benefits but I also just checked my email and got another job offer, how do I canccel the claim I put in

  105. For most states; If you wish to cancel your initial claim and not file for benefits, your cancellation request must be made in writing within 30 days after your claim is filed. The final date for the cancellation request is the same as the final date for appeal shown on your monetary determination.

    Keep in mind that; You must report all wages earned for any work, including temporary, part-time, and self-employment, for the week they are earned (not when paid).

  129. I currently have a job at BK but I feel like they are trying to make me quit purposefully. I need to know what to do. Here is a current situation for example: Saturday March 29 I didn’t have a ride to work so I called in to let manager on duty know. I called Sunday to see when I worked and found out I wasn’t scheduled to work for the week. When I went to pick up check Monday I asked head manager why I wasn’t on schedule and she said because I was a no show. I explained that I called in and told them I had a situation. She continued to tell me I could not work as a consequence. The manager that answered my call on Saturday stepped in on conversation and said I never called. Instead of arguing I left. My wife and I decided to call General manager after I left from getting my check. General manager said she would handle it and I should be working. It is now Wednesday and I’m still out of work. Being treated unfairly as an employee and don’t want to be forced to quit. Can someone please help me with this situation? What should I do?

  131. Your local Unemployment Office would have a copy of your work history. I would recommend that you call or visit your local unemployment office and speak with a counselor regarding getting a print out of your work history.

  132. If you have been injured on the job you should be looking at applying for Disability Benefits. As in order to get unemployment benefits you must be physically able to work at the time you file your unemployment insurance benefit claim.

  133. I would not recommend quitting your job if you don’t want to. You can visit or call your local unemployment office and speak with a counselor about your situation and get some advice on what to do. Keep in mind that one of the requirements for getting unemployment benefits is that you have “lost your job through no fault of your own”.

  134. You must file benefits in the state in which you were employed. You unemployment insurance benefit amount will be determined by the state in which you applied and was employed.

  135. Please contact you local unemployment/carrier center office for that information as each state has different rules on what program they provide financial aid.

  136. You have a choice of applying for unemployment Insurance benefits to cover the difference of your lower wages now or wait until you are out of a job. The advantage of getting the benefits now is that it would enable you to not have a gap in weekly benefits when you are out of work.

  148. You will need to talk with your local unemployment office regarding your eligibility for unemployment benefits as each state administrate their unemployment insurance benefit program differently. Usually If the individual was discharged or terminated, the local unemployment office will conduct a telephone interview with the individual and the employer after the claim is filed to determine whether or not the individual is eligible for UI benefits, according to state laws and regulations.

    State laws provides that individuals who are discharged or terminated may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance benefits provided that specific criteria are met. The unemployment office staff will determine on a case-by-case basis, whether the facts presented for the discharge or termination meet the criteria according to your state law. The individuals must also meet all other eligibility requirements before UI benefits are paid.

  164. To Whom It May Concern,
    I have given my two weeks notice at a job I have been employed at for 6 months. The reason is that the promises they made me when they offered me the position never metricized. The workplace conditions are intolerable (14 other employees have either quit or walked off the job since I have been there) and the Corporation is being striped of its Choice membership privileges because there are been so many customer complaints and they did not pass recent inspection. My questions are:
    1) Under these circumstance and my leaving on my own accord am I still eligible for unemployment?
    2) If I was only making $400.00 a MONTH at the time I left how much monthly employment income would I receive? (I was hired as a full time employee and because of company problems and deficiencies in procedure and policies I was cut back to part time status).
    3) Does my past employer have to approve my unemployment request?
    I have tried speaking to someone via phone, but the lines are always busy and I am thrown out of que.
    I would appreciate it if someone could either call me at:(2**9)9********* or e-mail back the answers.
    Thank you for taking the time

  184. I am an ex-offende (I served a 4-year sentence at a PA State SCI. Convicted of a felon-1 via “Guilty by Mental Illness”), I am now on 5 years state-supervised probation.

  193. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission – Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive. Anti-discrimination laws also prohibit harassment against individuals in retaliation for filing a discrimination charge, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit under these laws; or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals, in violation of these laws.

    Petty slights, annoyances, and isolated incidents (unless extremely serious) will not rise to the level of illegality. To be unlawful, the conduct must create a work environment that would be intimidating, hostile, or offensive to reasonable people.

    Offensive conduct may include, but is not limited to, offensive jokes, slurs, epithets or name calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and interference with work performance. Harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances, including, but not limited to, the following:

    The harasser can be the victim’s supervisor, a supervisor in another area, an agent of the employer, a co-worker, or a non-employee.
    The victim does not have to be the person harassed, but can be anyone affected by the offensive conduct.
    Unlawful harassment may occur without economic injury to, or discharge of, the victim.

    The employer is automatically liable for harassment by a supervisor that results in a negative employment action such as termination, failure to promote or hire, and loss of wages. If the supervisor’s harassment results in a hostile work environment, the employer can avoid liability only if it can prove that: 1) it reasonably tried to prevent and promptly correct the harassing behavior; and 2) the employee unreasonably failed to take advantage of any preventive or corrective opportunities provided by the employer.

    The employer will be liable for harassment by non-supervisory employees or non-employees over whom it has control (e.g., independent contractors or customers on the premises), if it knew, or should have known about the harassment and failed to take prompt and appropriate corrective action.

    When investigating allegations of harassment, the EEOC looks at the entire record: including the nature of the conduct, and the context in which the alleged incidents occurred. A determination of whether harassment is severe or pervasive enough to be illegal is made on a case-by-case basis. http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/harassment.cfm

    Sexual Harassment
    It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.

    Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature, however, and can include offensive remarks about a person’s sex. For example, it is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general.

    Both victim and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex.

    Although the law doesn’t prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).

    The harasser can be the victim’s supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer. http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/sexual_harassment.cfm

  214. You are obviously being under paid. You may need to file a complaint at your state department of employment.

  215. If you feel you are being harassed you need to report it your state department of labor.

    Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA).

    Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive. Anti-discrimination laws also prohibit harassment against individuals in retaliation for filing a discrimination charge, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit under these laws; or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals, in violation of these laws.

    Petty slights, annoyances, and isolated incidents (unless extremely serious) will not rise to the level of illegality. To be unlawful, the conduct must create a work environment that would be intimidating, hostile, or offensive to reasonable people.

    Offensive conduct may include, but is not limited to, offensive jokes, slurs, epithets or name calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and interference with work performance. Harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances, including, but not limited to, the following:

    The harasser can be the victim’s supervisor, a supervisor in another area, an agent of the employer, a co-worker, or a non-employee.
    The victim does not have to be the person harassed, but can be anyone affected by the offensive conduct.
    Unlawful harassment may occur without economic injury to, or discharge of, the victim.

  269. Hello,

    I am 30 weeks pregnant and I work 3rd shift right now. But after my baby is born there are complications schedule wise for me to be able to return to work. My fiance works first shift and sometimes his job requires him to be to work at 6:30am. And my time at work doesn’t end until 7:30 am. If I were to leave/quit my job to search for a job that better fits my schedule and so that I can be home with my newborn child will I be able to apply for unemployment benefits. I don’t want to quit my job, but the more myself and my fiance discuss this matter there is no way or no solution, besides me giving up working 3rd shift and maybe finding a job during first shift hours. I’ve had some people say I wouldn’t receive benefits, and other says I would be eligible but there would be a penalty of waiting 6-8 weeks before benefits start.

  285. If you feel you are being harassed you need to report it your state department of labor.

    Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA).

    Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive. Anti-discrimination laws also prohibit harassment against individuals in retaliation for filing a discrimination charge, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit under these laws; or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals, in violation of these laws.

    Petty slights, annoyances, and isolated incidents (unless extremely serious) will not rise to the level of illegality. To be unlawful, the conduct must create a work environment that would be intimidating, hostile, or offensive to reasonable people.

    Offensive conduct may include, but is not limited to, offensive jokes, slurs, epithets or name calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and interference with work performance. Harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances, including, but not limited to, the following:

    The harasser can be the victim’s supervisor, a supervisor in another area, an agent of the employer, a co-worker, or a non-employee.
    The victim does not have to be the person harassed, but can be anyone affected by the offensive conduct.
    Unlawful harassment may occur without economic injury to, or discharge of, the victim. more here http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/harassment.cfm

    Be totally or partially unemployed.
    Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
    Be physically able to work.

    Be actively looking for work.
    Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
    Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.

    Due to the fact the each state administrates their unemployment benefit program differently and has different eligibility requirements it’s always best to visit your state website to view that information. After viewing the eligibility requirements you can (on some State’s Unemployment Website) file your claim online. http://www.unemploymentoffice.us/unemployment-eligibility-requirements-state/

  314. I file my weekly certification every week & the employer I worked for has made it impossible for me to get unemployment by saying things about me that is not true. I worked at the place for 11 years & the way he fired me was by a phone call. He told me that he no longer needed my services & that he appreciated all the work I did for him. I worked other employees shifts that did not show up plus my shift as well. I also worked my shift & stayed until 11 pm on account someone either called in or didn’t show. This is not right. SO if i need to do a hearing how do I go about it?

  315. If you have worked in the same state since 1960 your state will have a record of your work history. You can then visit your state unemployment office and request your work history. The IRS will also have a complete record of your income reporting from companies for which you have worked. I would also recommend that you visit your local IRS office and request a report of your work history.

The letter typically includes evidence supporting the request for a reconsideration of the decision and may even include the name or names of potential witnesses who are willing to testify in a hearing on the individual’s behalf.”

  348. My employee is undergoing surgery shortly on both his feet and thus will not be able to work for me (it is a very labor intensive job). What are his options for the 4 months that he will not receive a paycheck? It seems worker’s comp is not an option (not an injury on the job) and disability is not an option (b/c it’s a short term injury) and unemployment is not an option (b/c he won’t be able to work anywhere).

    Solutions??

  349. I have 1 full time seasonal job and 1 part time job. I will be furloughed from my full time job in November 2015 until January 2016. I only work about 12 hours at my part time job. Will I be eligible to receive unemployment if I keep my part time job?

I have filed a claim and been approved for benefits, but, have not actually claimed benefits as of yet. My question is, am I exempt from the work search requirements since I will be returning for work when the weather allows in the spring, I’m not sure that whole process is worth $104 per week to me. Thank you for your consideration.

  351. i just started working for a local flooring company in mid july of 2015. The owner did not tell me upon hiring me that he was going through a divorce and that he had financial issues. I keep being told from all his builder accounts that he keeps messing up on jobs with them and they are very close to closing their accounts with him. Meaning he will lose business and not have any money coming in. This can lead to the possibility of me losing my job. If this situation does happen would i be able to claim unemployment being that i just started here in July? I work full time 40 hours a week.

  359. I owned and managed a retail pet store in Illinois for more than 30 years. I was also an employee, and was paid as such. I paid into unemployment almost my entire working career. I had to start collecting social security early, as I didn’t make much money, and needed the income. I was forced to close the business due to poor sales. I was told by the ILLINOIS unemployment office that I couldn’t collect any benefits, because I was getting social security benefits. This didn’t seem fair, and I really needed those benefits.

List your spouse’s military relocation as the reason why you quit your job on all forms. When you quit your job be sure to notify your employer in writing that you are quitting due to your spouse’s military relocation and keep a copy of this letter.

    Most states allow you to resign or quit 30 days before the report date listed on your spouse’s orders, so be careful about quitting too early if you plan to file for unemployment. https://www.veteransunited.com/spouse/unemployment-military-spouses-qualify/
