Hi, I have been on regular unemployment since the last week of January of this year after loosing a fulltime job of 6 years. I have been offered a 2 week temp job, how do I handle this on my weekly certification? Do I skip filing for two weeks or will this close out my claim? Do I go ahead and certify and just answer "yes" to the question regarding working the 2 weeks in question? I can't find a definite answer to my questions online and appreciate any information,I live in Tennessee, thanks!

it will not close out your claim depending on how much you make you might not get anything from unemployment though. Be careful as if you have earnings in 2 of your quarters and make enough you may qualify for a new claim when your BYE at a lesser rate.

i worked for 3 weeks while on tier 1 just report what you earned and keep filing

thanks for your response, do you know if my end week of regular unemployment remains the same if I do not collect for those two weeks? The amount I anticipate making for those 2 weeks is more than my weekly unemployment payment so I would not get anything for those weeks, would it extend by 2 weeks as I would still have those earnings left? It is fine either way, I am just afraid of making a mistake and having to sign up all over again, thanks!

Yes for those 2 weeks your unemployment will be frozen then pick up when your earnings drop. Some people like to work part time to drag out their claim a little longer
