We are off for mandatory holidays. Can I file unemployment ?

unemployed_personQ) We are off for mandatory holidays week long for thanksgiving and two weeks for Christmas. Can I file unemployment for my time off?

A) Yes! You are always entitled to apply for unemployment benefits if you have lost your job or partially employed. However keep in mind that The general requirement for unemployment insurance benefits is:

Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
Be totally or partially unemployed.
Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
Be physically able to work.
Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
Be actively looking for work.
Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.

  1. Apparently the UE office in Asheboro, NC had moved yet they have not updated their new address on this website. Apparently they close at 12pm each Wednesday but I don’t see that info anywhere either. A local police officer tried helping me find the office today and he too did not know it moved or where to. He was kind enough to call someone and get the new address for me. I am unable to find a website for them as well. I am an employer attempting to contact them to discuss employment opportunities.
