Had to claim a bi-weekly benefit check on the phone because of a computer glitch; clerk online said to me "looks like you have a job, did you work the past two weeks?" Told her it was a temp agency and that I was not placed at a job yet. Which was the truth. She was fine with that response. I think that I read that temp agencies open up an whole bag of worms and now I'm sorry I did;

This was a temp agency that places substitute teachers and you have to log onto their website to find a job; their rule is if you don't work 4 days in one month, they let you go; since I am already one week into the month and haven't worked; what happens if by the end of the month I am not able to work four days and the company let me go? how does that affect me re: Unemployment? what if NJ Unemployment ever asks me what happened with this temp agency? I just have to tell them the truth?

I can work in other school districts independently which do not have this requirement.

If you successfully get out of this substitute teaching thing, then don't get back into it.

Substitute teaching and unemployment are terrible together. You can be a substitute teacher for 1 day a month, but when the school year ends or you're on school breaks, you're aren't eligible for UI for those weeks because of a "reasonable assurance" of reemployment to the same extent.

If teaching is your thing, you need to look for a real teaching job and stay away from this temp stuff.

I don't know how the not working 4 days a month will be viewed. Could be it's treated that it's your fault if you didn't log on, but it could be that there just wasn't 4 days of work that month available to you, but whatever you do, don't sign up for anymore substitute work until your UI benefits are exhausted or come fall break, Christmas break, spring break, parent teacher conferences, or summer vacation, you'll be sorry.
