I'm confused again about unemployment payments.

I just got hired back to work this week. Will be paid for 2 days of training (Tuesday and today) and working full shifts Thursday and Friday (all this week). But I won't be paid for any of this until Friday, March 5th.

When I fill out my unemployment claim Sunday night, I will be asked if I worked any time this past week. I did, but I won't be paid for it until March 5th. Will they take this out of my unemployment payment NOW?

When they ask if you worked, do they actually mean work & paid this past week? I just can't afford to have my unemployment benefits shrunk before I get my actual paycheck from my new job. I'm barely surviving final penny to final penny.

I hope someone can answer this soon. Thank you so much.

I don't know if it's different in other states, but here in MN you report your earnings when you earn them, not when they are paid. If your state if the same way, then your UE will be effected for the week you performed the work.

In New Jersey, you must report when you do work -- not when you actually receive the earnings from that work.

The certification form you complete every two weeks specifies: "Did you work during the weeks claim?" Not, "Did you receive payment for work during the weeks claimed?"

You would report June 21, 22 and 23 as days worked. If each day paid $ 100 you would report $ 300 as earned.

I’m on unemployment but my company might want me to work from home.
If I don’t get my 40 hours can I refuse & stay on unemployment?

No, you cant refuse employment and still collect. Unless you have a COVID19 related issue. Did they give you an idea of how many hours you will be working? If hypothetically they only give you 30 hours, you probably wont be able to claim partial. Seeing your 30 hour a week wages will be high than WBR + the % of your partial unemployment. If they only work you say 20 hours, that would put you in line with being able to still collect the 600.00 cares a week.

Looks like 2 weeks 80 hours total to get some work out.
And then probably no work again.
If I work those 2 weeks will I loose the 600
For each week worked?

You will not get the $600 extra a week if you don't get at least $1 of UI benefits for that week. So yes you will lose the $600 a week if working full time each week.
