Hi there. Glad I found this board where I could ask questions. Great source of info here.

I have been unemployed since March 2010 and am currently on my 2nd Tier of benefits about to move to my 3rd Tier on the week ending Feb. 26 2011. My original claim ends on at the end of March 2010.

I got a call from a temp agency last week and one of their clients was looking for someone with my skills. I thought what the heck lets at least entertain it. I felt like it was a good thing to try them out and they could try me out so to speak. Did all my interviews, etc. and the client decided they liked me.

I worked one day for 2 hours and another day at 8 hours and another day at 8 hours for a total of 2 days and 2 hours (18 hours total). The fit did not feel right at all so I decided not to go back. I claimed the hours on my continued claim form like you are suppose to do so edd can take the deductions from my ui and listed the temp agencies address and name on the form.

I am now freaking out if the temp agency will contact edd to say that I did not go back, etc. or if edd will contact the temp agency. My UI claim was not filed on the temp agency but on my original employer that I was laid off of after 15 years. I made about $400 for the days that I worked thru the temp agency. Will this cause a problem moving from Tier 2 to Tier 3, etc and what happens when I go to re-certify after a year (end of March 2010). Thanks for any input and opinions you might have. Kind of freaking out here if I might have caused a problem with moving to other Tiers and or re-certifying.

Simply not showing up could be viewed as you "quitting" . I'm not sure how that plays out with EDD. That's something you need to discuss with an EDD agent

Well you ended the assignment not the agency. You may have a problem. Was it supposed to be long term for a few months? Did you leave the agency hanging?

By that I mean did you just not show up or call them and say "It's not working out" and make them look bad in front of their client? So that they had no one to replace you at the last minute.

Since it was only a few days it might slide under the wire. Since what you earned from the temp agency wasn't much and they're not paying into your claim at this point.

Don't do that again.

When you put down the reason you are no longer working, it will be "Quit". If you say otherwise they will check with the agency anyway, if you have conflicting reasons, the EDD will investigate and schedule an interview. If you tell them you decided not to show up, they're going to consider that as quitting and then disqualify you for benefits.

In the future, don't take those type of jobs unless they pay a lot and you good reason to believe the job will go permanent. Use the time that you have on unemployment benefits to look for permanent work, don't do short term temp work, period.

I think the OP poster messed up taking that temp job and then quitting. Not showing up is quitting. Even if a job is for a few days, the EDD still wants to know why you're no longer working there.

Thanks for the input. I'm wondering if I should continue to file and see what happens? What would you do?

When you filled out your Continued Claim form, what did you put down for Reasons No Longer Working?

I mailed the claim form before this happened so I put down continuing to work part time. I still have 1-2 hours to claim for on the new claim form.

Temp agencies don't like to pay unemployment, and they may contest your claim.

My claim is not based on the temp agency nor was it filed on the temp agency. In essence they have nothing to do with my claim. Im just hoping they dont cause problems. I am in my 2nd Tier on a claim that was filed from my last employer.
