School closes for 2 months in the summer and I do not get paid, am I eligible for unemployment?

unemployed_personQ) I currently work for a school as an hourly employee. School closes for 2 months in the summer and I do not get paid, am I eligible for unemployment?
Thank you

A) Yes, You are eligible for unemployment benefits during your 2 months summer brake without employment.
I am not eligible for benefits because I have an offer to return to work in school employment when the recess period ends. Is a school employee ever eligible during a recess period?

Yes, if the following conditions are met:

You have enough non-school wages in the base period to establish a valid claim.
You have made yourself available to work for your school employer or another school employer and that school employer has indicated that it may call you to work during the recess period.

  1. Hello.

    My company is currently hiring and I was wondering how I may go about sending a job posting.

    We are looking for staff with reliable vehicles that can hold 3 individuals with developmental disabilities. They must pass a DOJ background check with Community Care Licensing. We teach life skills, vocational skills, communication, money management, socialization in a completely community based setting. We pay $12/hour and offer a mileage reimbursement of 53 cents /mile that one of our individuals are in the vehicle. Our greatest needs are in Temecula, Murrieta and Menifee; however if a person is willing to work at any of those locations we can get them started. After background checks are completed the staff attend 4 days of paid training in Rancho Cucamonga at our state office followed by a day to familiarize themselves with our program before heading into the field with their individuals for field training.

    If you have any questions or would like me to send the Now Hiring flyer, please let me know.

    Many thanks,

    Jennie Hurley
    Program Director
