Hello.. I have a question that I hope can be answered.

I am a full-time employee working at a resort. The resort is slated to be closed this winter season starting on December 1st and opening April 1st. I am guaranteed employment back on April 1st, and have it in writing. My boss told me that within such a short amount of time I'll be laid off, that I don't need to seek employment elsewhere due to the fact I am guaranteed employment back at my current job. Is that true? How much am I eligible to get paid during my time off? Others are telling me that technically, I am supposed to look for other work, but when they see that I am going back to my old employeer, that I won't even be bothered. So, I'm not sure who to believe!

I emailed the NY Labor dept, but I got a generic answer back.

Any help would be appreciated!

If you can afford to live on unemployment during those months, you should file for unemployment. If unemployment isn't enough for you, than you would have to find another job. In this economy, your boss may be making a promise he cannot keep regarding your employment.

Also, don't forget that any unemployment benefit that you use you will need to pay taxes on later. The money you get paid via unemployment is generally untaxed (leaving it up to you to sort out and pay out later).
