Q) I have been working for two doctors in one office for 15 years. One doctor just passed away, so I lost that job and the other doctor decided to downgrade his office size and laid me off. The doctors each hired me as a part time worker to split my wages. Do I have to file two cases since each Doctor hired me as a part time worker? One final day was on the 30th and one wrote down the 31 is this a problem? How do I file?
A) If you have been working two jobs and lost your total income from both jobs You can file for unemployment benefits on one claim. If you have lost income on both jobs, you can file a total loss of work claim. If you had two jobs and lose one or experienced reduced hours at either or both, you can file a partial loss of work claim. The amount you receive in benefits will be determined by the amount of money you are earning per week. If you have zero income you will possibly be entitled to maximum benefits if you have fulfilled all your state prior qualifying work hours.
