unemployed_personQ) We are off for mandatory holidays week long for thanksgiving and two weeks for Christmas. Can I file unemployment for my time off?

A) Yes! You are always entitled to apply for unemployment benefits if you have lost your job or partially employed. However keep in mind that The general requirement for unemployment insurance benefits is:

Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
Be totally or partially unemployed.
Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
Be physically able to work.
Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
Be actively looking for work.
Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.
