While awaiting an unemployment appeal decision, I have been working a part-time job. I won the appeal and will shortly be receiving my benefits, including back-benefits. I already know that quitting my part time job would be risky, but my question is, how does the EDD know? Will they phone the employer immediately upon my reporting that I am no longer receiving that income? How long does it take them to realize it and do something? Or will they just ask me what happened and leave it at that? My benefits are only $236 a week, so I am wondering if it would even be worth their time. I am wondering if I can just tell them that the work was temporary until I got my UI benefits coming in - that the employer was helping me out. Any insight you can give will be helpful. Thanks much.

I don't know anything about reporting. The only thing that I can tell you is that here in NJ I have gone back to work while being on unemployment and in about only a week received a letter from unemployment saying something along the lines of "We have record that you have gone back to work so your unemployment compensation will end. If this is in error blah blah blah." So apparently it's pretty fast however they do it.

The amount of your benefit is irrelevant. You can't quit a job if you are eligible for unemployment benefits, whether or not they've been paid, unless you have "good cause." Here is CA's page on Voluntary Quits:

Voluntary Quit VQ 5 - Elements of a Voluntary Quit

Quitting a "temp" or part-time job because UE benefits are approved is an unacceptable excuse. CA expects you to work if the opportunity arises, assuming it is suitable work. Since you've been working part-time, this job is now considered "suitable." You would have been on better ground refusing a part-time job, as it is not considered suitable if you had lost full-time employment and are now seeking full-time employment.

Since you have won your appeal, CA will pay you retroactively to the date of your original claim. You should have been reporting those part-time earnings each week you claimed during that appeal period. When that job ends, CA will investigate why. If you lie now and say it was a temp job that ended, CA will discover this eventually. Your employer may even report the quit when it happens. Temp agencies report refusals of work immediately to CA. If you haven't been reporting those earnings, CA will discover this very quickly and ask you about them.

Better keep the job until it ends, and be sure those earnings have been reported for those weeks you are being paid retro. CA allows you to keep 25% of what you earn, anyway.

If you fail to report those earnings and/or lie about why that job has ended, CA will consider it fraud and disqualify you from benefits.

You'll have a tough time proving that working part-time restricted your ability to find another job.

An employer will fire you when you can't do the job, but that's their call, but you quitting because you can't do the job won't work. If you can't do the job, you sit there and don't do it, and your employer will either keep paying you to do nothing, or they'll send you packing, and THEN you can get your UI.

You need a "good cause" reason for a quit. Unless your state is willing to accept financial hardship because you are only paid once a month as a "good cause" - you are stuck. A quit for this reason would stop benefits, entirely.

What state are you in?
