No. Because the only people qualified to receive the benefits are the employees the owner hires. The owner is not eligible for unemployment.
Unemployment after world war 1 was very high. Those who managed to keep their jobs, saw their wages drop.
Generally, no. And you will, in most cases, have to wait for at least 1 week, as the state has to investigate whether you are entitled to the benefits.
Yes. The longer you wait after losing your job, the less benefits you'll receive because they will not let the base period go back retroactively. You will also find out, when you file, how much you will get and what you need to qualify. Sign up, soon.

The process doesn't start until you file for unemployment. Once filed, most states have a minimum of one week before paying compensation. Each state has its own protocol, as it has to verify the facts given by both the employee and the employer, so you would need to check with your own state.
Each state has its own formulae for taxing employers for unemployment benefits that will eventually be paid out to unemployed workers. It generally has to do with the employer's total payroll and the rate is dependent on the turnover rate of the employer's work force. The lower rate is for employers...
You will need to check with your own local authorities to see how much you can earn - if anything - while drawing unemployment benefits.

According to the CIA World Factbook Pakistans 2008 estimated unemployment rate is 7.4% plus substantial underemployment.
No. California does not apply an offset to unemployment compensation based on Social Security benefits. You can receive the full amount you qualify for under each program.
In CA you have to pay it back, they will even take it out of your taxes if you do not. Also you can not receive new claims for a certain amount of time.
If you were on workers compensation and that ran out and then your old job did not take you back, you should be able to collect unemployment. However, you will need to apply for it. There are certain restrictions. You will need to go to the unemployment office and ask them rather than ask the...
There are different tax brackets. The more youmake doesn't necessarily mean you will get back more. If that person has a child or was a student etc.. that can make the difference.

I take it you are the employer. You don't keep them, send them to where you usually send them. The employee being fired will no longer make an income at your business but whatever wages were earned while employeed would still be done the same as they always were.
According to page 4 in the Handbook in the Related Link below, depending on your qualifications, the maximum weekly benefit is $405.

It depends on the purpose of the relocation and what state is the "liable state". If it is to only relocate, then most states would say it is the choice of the employee and would disallow. However, in some states, to relocate because a spouse is relocating (i.e. military, job change, etc.), the...
It's based on earnings and time. To be eligible, you had to work in the first 4 of the last 5 complete calendar quarters. If so, then you had to earn at least $750 in one of the 4 quarters. If you are O.K. so far, then the total wages you earned has to be 1 1/2 times the highest quarter. See the...
Yes. If you qualify for unemployment benefits in your state, you can also collect Social Security benefits as they are 2 separate and distinct programs that do not interfere with each other.
According to page 8 in the Related Link below, you not only can collect Social Security AND unemployment, but your unemployment benefits are not reduced because of your SS benefits.
Because of the complexity in determining Michigan's worker eligibility and the several ways to calculate it, refer to the Related Link below. As for the SS part, it does not reduce your unemployment benefits at all.
The answer to this depends on what state is involved, why there has to be any "pay back" (i.e., misrepresentation or ?) in the first place, etc. And as to the taxes not taken out, whether there is a tax liability depends on other tax issues such as deductions, dependents, etc. Check with a tax...
I believe this answer is slightly incorrect -- "Yes, you can. Under "Non monetary Issues" > "Disqualifications" item (f) on page 5 of the Related Link below, Social Security benefits are excluded from the disqualifying chargeable benefits you receive." As I understand it, people who live in...
Yes. Check item #45 under "Unemployment Services" > "General Unemployment Insurance questions" in the Related Link below.
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them individually. See the Related Link below.
Yes. But there are conditions that must be met. See the Related Link below under "Benefit Eligibility" > "Voluntary Quit" > "Spouse following spouse"
This would depend on the state you work in. If it's considered quitting for benefit of the employee, and not job related, some states would say you were not qualified.
This depends on the state you work in. Generally not, because some states consider the off school season as not unemployed. You need to check with your own state for criteria.
