When hired the job I applied for stated 6-7 days. Last 2 weeks I only had worked 3 days. Can I file for benefits?

Q) When hired the job I applied for stated 6-7 days, 10-12 hr days, must be able to travel 3 different locations. 4/5 weeks a month I average
8-24 hrs weekly. Now for last 2 weeks I only had worked 3 days cause no work available. Can I file for benefits?

A) You may file a claim for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits if your work hours have been reduced or you are no longer working. To be eligible to receive UI benefits you must be out of work due to no fault of your own and be physically able to work, ready to accept work, and looking for work.

You should apply for benefits as soon as you are unemployed or your hours are reduced. Your claim will be filed or reopened the Sunday of the week you file. All claims have a one-week, unpaid waiting period. The waiting period does not begin until the claim is filed.
To determine if you are eligible to receive benefits, you will be asked a variety of questions such as information about your past employers and the reason you are out of work. To ensure your claim is filed as quickly as possible, you should have the following information ready before you file your claim:
• Your Social Security number, name (including all names you used while working), date of birth, mailing and residence address (including ZIP code) and phone number (including area code).
• Your driver’s license or identification card number.
• The last date you worked for any employer.
• Last employer information including the name of the business or company you last physically worked for, address (mailing and physical location) and phone number. We also need the ZIP code for both addresses and the area code for the employer’s phone number.
• The reason you are no longer working for your last employer and the name of your supervisor.
• Information on all employers you worked for during the 18 months prior to filing of your claim, including name, address, period of employment, wages earned, and how you were paid.
• Information from your DD214 Member Copy 4, if you were in the Military the last 18 months.
• Information from your Standard Form 8, “Notice to Federal Employees About Unemployment Insurance” if you worked for an agency of the federal government during the last 18 months.
• Your alien registration number and expiration date if you are not a U.S. citizen.

  1. Worked for company 19 1/2 years, had jury duty they released us saying they did not need us, took the form back to work gave to girls behind the counter like I have done the last 18 years, get called into office an was asked where my form was, I said I turned it in. She says not good enough so sent daughter to go to court get a different one? because they did not get it. A week goes by I get called in again and she asked did I go to jury I said yes but they did not need us and was released, she said why did you not come back to work I said because no one comes back to work if they have 1 day of jury service she said yes you do and out of the whole 3 floors in the building you would not find 1 person that would say yes you have to come back to work. Not even the corporate boss’s wife, which worked their she said nope no one comes back to work, well I get pulled in again and they fire me, can I collect unemployment she said I falsified a time card? what time card I never signed a time card the whole 19 years their? You get signed in when you log into your computer: I had no clue, where all this was coming from? Now they are calling me a thief on top of it? When she fired me I just took my badge off and said you want it that bad take it and left.. I was in shock that they would actually go so low to now call me a thief and for what, no retirement no medical really so out of the blue I am just starting lying and cheating at work really? I hope they all know what karma is! and the next day wow my G.F. calls me from work and says guess what’s on my desk I say what she says its a letter to all the people saying if you go to jury duty you have to come back if they let you go early? wow really! can I get unemployment since I paid into it for 19 half years?
