I started receiving benefits in June of this year, and got a job in July knowing that I wouldn't be working there for very long. My employer and I didn't get along, and I'm worried that if EDD contacts the employer he'll give them a bad reference and that my benefit would stop. I only made like ~$200 while working there, and I only worked for 2 weeks.

How likely is it that my most recent employer will be contacted by EDD? I'm in California if that makes any difference.

Very likely, as when you go to reopen the claim (I am guessing that you reported the employer on the claim form if you were still able to claim partial payments) or stop putting the employer, EDD may very likely want to know why you are no longer working there.

Chyvan has a lot more advice on part time work while unemployed, but the bottom line is don't do it...for this and many other reasons.

Yes, I reported the earnings. I actually spoke to a representative in person at an EDD office nearby, because I filled out the form incorrectly and was told I wouldn't receive benefits until I sorted out the matter. So I went in and they told me it was because I didn't include the name/location of the employer (Which I did because I reported the earnings from that employer on the previous form correctly, but my handwriting is rather sloppy so I figure that's why), and I told them it was a temporary position. I then received the NOTICE OF UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CLAIM FILED sheet in the mail saying that the reason I no longer work there was because it was a temporary position. So they know why I'm not working there. However, I have a feeling the employer could simply say I got fired, and it would end up being my work against his.

Also, I haven't picked up my paycheck for the wages I earned while working there because of how I detest him so, does this affect anything?

Yes, the employer could tell them that you got fired.

Also, if the real reason you left the company is a termination and NOT a temp position, that is EDD fraud. That is a pond you do NOT want to swim in....

What really happened? Did the job end like it was supposed to, and they just weren't happy with you, did you get fired, or did you quit before the job was supposed to be over?

Those are the factors that EDD will be looking at.

I didn't finish out my last few shifts while working there. He never explicitly said I got fired, and I never had a set schedule of when I was supposed to work, just an end date. Neither of us made any effort to get in contact with each other.

Your employer, if he wishes, can say you abandoned the job. If that happens, you will have to prove you weren't expected to work those "last few shifts."

I don't have any proof except for the fact that he didn't call me to pick up any shifts.

Since I received the benefits from the previous claim when from when I worked, does this mean that they contacted my former employer already? Would they have inquired to him before providing me with benefits for that period of time, or is there usually a gap in time from payment to them contacting the employer? Is this case different since I reopened the claim as opposed to just reporting the earned wages on the form?

If he said I got fired, this would obviously be considered EDD Fraud, what sort of penalties could I be subjected to?

Sorry for all the questions, I just what to understand my situation as much as possible.

nobody can figure out if your telling the truth on here so you might have trouble with edd. i would give a very honest answer on here because you have 2 people on this thread i noticed in the past with a wealth of knowledge. was it really a temp job? if it was full time or temp position did you blow them off intentionally? its coming off that you did not want to be there so you just did not go.

Okay,

The job was temporary because I had another job lined up which fell through, unfortunately. I didn't tell this to my employer out of fear of not getting hired initially because I was desperate for money. And yes, I did not want to be there, so I didn't put forth an effort to stay. It was a part time job. I just want to get this whole thing sorted out before it gets worse. What can I do? What consequences do I face?
