Default question about temp work and unemployment benefits

I am receiving NYS unemployement of $364 after tax w/h and I have been out of workfor almost 3 months,

1)Can some explain how unemployment works if you take a full time temp job only from a temporary agency like account temps. Do I still certify each week even thought I wiill make more than $405 a week and I wont collect.

2)Can you stop working temp any time without messing up your unemployment since it is a temp job if you find that you are going on too many interviews

Most states allow you to earn a small amount of money from temporary or odd jobs that will not be deducted from your unemployment pay. In my State I can earn $75 and adding that to my unemployment insurance payment gives me all I need to cover my fixed expenses. If I earn more in a particular week, then I just get a smaller unemployment insurance check that week. But that helps me because I will be able to collect longer if necessary because it leaves more money in my account.

In the past I always found a job the week my unemployment benefits ran out, funny how that happened!

If I was laid off temporarily and my employer calls me back to work and I chose not to return does my unemployment stop.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And


NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bad decision!

Normally, once you get signed up with a Temp agency it is very hard to get unemployment. If the first job does not work out, you will be stuck with any job they give you and money!!!

If you want to work part-time, then get a job with a company who wants a temp or part-time work, i.e. approx. less 1/3 of your check.

However, if your feel optimisitic - Then go for it! Take the temporary job and hope that they will treat you well and you have enough savings to WAIT a month, if you get separted from your temp job to restart your claim....and if the temp agency can fight it!!

in my opinion not worth the hassell,unless you are making pennies on your unemployment or you are very optimistic or you like taking risks.

Yes, you still file weekly.

No,you will lose your unemployment and you will have to go through the re-claiming process and appeal process, etc.

I accepted a temp job here in Atlanta, Georgia and was on my Second Tier of unemployment benefits before that time (20 more weeks of UI). My temp assignment will be ending in two weeks. I still certified every week even though i wasn't entitled to an insurance check with the Dept. of Labor. Once my assignment ends and I certifiy (like i was doing even though i worked temp) will I be entitled to my weekly benefit>

It will depend on how long you worked your temp assignment and how much you earned during that period.

If your temp assignment (added to your previous work) meets the requirements for a new UI claim, a new one will be opened for you.

If you don't meet the requirements for a new claim, your previous claim will be reopened.

Check your state DOL website for the requirements for a new claim.

BTW, Tier II is only for up to 14 weeks; if you were in a Tier collecting 20 weeks, you were probably on Tier I.

Yep, it's funny. It happens to most folks on UE.

I have the solution to the UE problem.

No more extensions!

You were "laid off" in the true meaning of the phrase (before it became a catch all for "let go for whatever reason"), you weren't fired, discharged or let go.

Why would you not want to return to your job after a temporary lay off?

Just FYI -- that post was from March 14, 2009, so I'm guessing that you're probably not going to get an answer to your question from that poster.
