I am currently working full time, but want to take a class that would require me to miss work for six weeks.

unemployed_personQ) I am currently working full time, but want to take a class that would require me to miss work for six weeks. My employer is saying that is time, and also that I would be able to collect unemployment during that six week period, as I would not be working. Is this true???

A) I if you voluntarily decide not to work, you cannot claim unemployment insurance benefits. Unemployment insurance is for people who are looking, and available, for work. If you can’t prove to your state’s unemployment department that your class schedule won’t interfere with your job hunt, you may lose your right to unemployment compensation.

  1. I have not worked in nine years. I keep getting letters from Michigan Dept of Labor saying they are offering me more unemployment money, You can’t go to their office, it seems to be closed, you can’t talk to anyone on the phone, you just get a recording telling you to go online and appeal to get more benefits.
    I mailed in and emailed in and faxed in fraud reports, I get back a nice letter telling me how to file to get more benefits.
    Now I get a 1099 for $5,500.00 that I am supposed to pay tax on.
    So I sent another fraud report and today I get a letter from them saying I am approved for more benefits and how to appeal their decision and try to get een more benefits.
    I have received no money from them, I asked where they were sending the money, no reply. They have my address to send me info on getting more benefits, so where are they sending the money?
    China? Russia? This is pure insanity.
