The test is how much you earned in the base period of 12 months, starting 15-17 months before your application. See the Related Link below for more information.

If you are the owner of the business you are not eligible for unemployment benefits. If you are the worker, you are.

If you work 82.5 hours per month you are considered employed and would not qualify for unemployment benefits.

According to the Related Link below you would not be eligible for unemployment benefits because you would not be available for full time employment, a requirement.

Because self employed people are not eligible for unemployment compensation, if you are the sole employee in your business you would not be liable for the unemployment tax.

No. Under the heading "You may be ineligible to receive benefits if:" in the Related Link below, self-employed persons may not be eligible.

If you are asking this to find out how many people are employed in California the answer is currently 88% due to the high 12% unemployment rate. Keep in mind that this number reflects the current number of people who are currently collecting unemployment benefits, not those who have dropped off the system and no longer are eligible. The actual numbers will be significantly higher.

Unemployment only comes to those who have been previously employed, so mere graduation does not entitle one to unemployment benefits.

By definition, filing for any benefits, etc for "unemployment" when you are actually employed is deception and is therefore CRIMINAL.

No. Self employed persons are not eligible, only those working for someone else for wages.

They would ask questions concerning your employment such as your explanation for not being employed, work conditions, relationships with management and fellow employees and anything that would hinge on your being eligible for the unemployment benefits.

In South Carolina, among other requirements, you have to have worked for your last bona fide employer long enough to have earned eight (8) times your weekly unemployment benefits. See the Related Link below for more details.

If you are receiving FMLA benefits, you are still employed. Unemployment is for people that are not employed, therefore you would not be eligible for benefits. You would have to wait until your FMLA and any other possible leave is exhausted before applying for unemployment. However, if you are still not able to work after your benefits are exhausted or caring for someone and not available to work, then you could be denied based on those factors. Correct. FMLA leaev is only for those still emepeloyed, but totally incapacitated from working by their med condition or the relative's condition. Folks totally incapacitated from working can never get unemployment benefits.

Health benefits vary from company to company. Most likely if the chef is working 40 hours or more per week, they're eligible for health benefits. If the chef is working as a contractor (self employed) then he/she must supply their own health benefits.

A self-employed person may not collect unemployment benefits based on his self employment. See the Related Link below for details.

Unemployment benefits are governed by states, so it will depend on what state you worked in. I am not aware of any state that has a limitation on how long you needed to be working to obtain benefits. I would check with your state's department of labor or workforce development. In some larger states, you may have a department of unemployment, which would be where I would suggest too.

It is illegal to collect unemployment benefits while employed in NYS.

You will need to apply for unemployment in the state that you were employed.

The reference below in the Related Link is referencing total time worked in the base period (several methods of calculating that) and the amount earned, with no mention of how long you need to be employed by a single employer.

You had to have worked and be paid wages in at least two calendar quarters of your base period (of one year). Refer to the Related Link below.

No cashing out your 401k does not effect your eligibility for unemployment because this is not considered income related to a current job. Therefore you would not be considered as working or employed if you are just liquidating an asset you already had

User Avatar

It depends. If the surgery was work related, you might be eligible for Workers' Comp. Otherwise, you're still employed and are not eligible.

User Avatar

No, if you are employed and making a gross income while collecting unemployment benefits, and they can prove you know this is wrong, you can be arrested for fraud.

In Florida, you have to file a claim to find out about this particular question. Reference: "FAQs"; 'Claims and Benefits'; "Before I Claim; #3. in the Related Link below.

It varies because each state has its own requirements for eligibility.
