Default unemployment benefits after temporary job

Lets say you have been getting unemployment for 8 months and then a temporary maternity leave teaching position comes along for about 2 1/2 months.

Once you start working the temporary job, I assume when you file for the week you file that you worked and the pay you got.

My question is, what happens after the job is over? Do you have to refile or that week you just file and say that you did not have work all week?

This is in New york.

I went through this in Pennsylvania, sort of. I had gotten a call from a recruiter telling me about a temp (3 month) position for warehouse work. Needless to say, I interviewed and they decided on someone else, but before that I called PA unemployment and asked them about if I were to work temporairly for 3 months and then be let go. What they told me is that during your Benefit Year, your claim stays active. When you file your unemployment claim, you do have to list all income received, and your benefits are reduced depending on how much you make. They also told me that when the temp job was over, as long as I was let go through no fault of my own, that I would be able to return and resume my unemployment. But I still would have had to report income from the temp job. Once the last payment of the temp job was claimed, then I would have been allowed to go back to regular unemployment and finish out wherever I was at the time. I'm sure most states are similar to this, so hopefully this answers your question.

In addition to the helpful information given by wabbitsu just keep in mind that if you take a temporary job it might have implications for you when your benefit year ends because at that point you might be eligible for a new claim. It all depends on your particular state's methodology of determining eligibility.
You might want to review your state's rules as respects total number of hours required to work and income earned. Conceivably, you could end up with a lower weekly benefit if you were to take a temp job after your benefit year is up and a new claim is opened. Or, you might end up not even being eligible anyway. But, you should review your state's rules to know where you stand.

You're right, it does vary between states. In PA, to get another 26-week unemployment claim, I have to had worked between original and new benefit year, made 6x my weekly benefit rate, and be let go of the job during my benefit year through no fault of my own. If I had been given the temp job I mentioned earlier, I would have been let go around the end of January, with my benefit year ending in early February. I could have gotten another 26-week claim, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.

I have been on unemployment benefits for 2 months. Today I was contacted about a production assistant position for a television show - that would only last 4months - making only about $100 more than I am making on unemployment, but I definitely just want to start work. Can I claim unemployment benefits once this ends or should I just report what I am working during this duration of time?
