Default Can small business owners draw unemployment?

I cannot find any help with question! I have to research the topic for an accounting class. Can a small business owner draw unemployment? If so what are the stipulations?

I think you must disconnect the phonelines and not be operating any business.

I have the same problem. They do not have anything for owners!

I was a business owner in NYS and was not eligible to collect unemployment even though my employees were and I received a salary in addition to dividends.

That's because you're a business owner and not an employee.

What did you tell NJ when you applied? They ask about self-employment.

You might be. Depends a lot on how much your small business is bringing in. You're allowed to earn a certain amount and still collect at least partial benefits
