I'm in California and I lost my job 2 months ago after working in the same firm for 11 years. It was a very small office of 2-3 people, and recently I learned that I may be needed back for a 2 month assignment that will involve a lot of overtime.

I have the option of being hired back as an employee (no benefits, just to have taxes taken out of my paycheck and the employer paying part of my ss etc) or I can come back as a temporary contractor and go the 1099 route.

Since I know this is a temp job, will either one of these prohibit me from re-opening my UI claim after the job is finished?
