Arizona Unemployment If You Get Laid-off

Generally, in Arizona you have to have lost your job through no fault of your own in order to collect unemployment. When you get laid-off, it is not your fault.

In almost all cases, this means that if you get laid-off, you are eligible to collect unemployment benefits.

If you get laid-off from your job, you should immediately apply for unemployment benefits.

Getting laid-off doesn't mean that you were fired. Getting laid-off doesn't mean that you did something wrong. Getting laid-off means that they company that you worked for did not have enough work for you to do, and could no longer afford to pay you to do your job.

I am currently receiving unemployment here in AZ and on the Federal extension program. I have been out of work for 9 months. If I take a telemarketing job and then get laid off within 1-2 months due to no fault of mine except that they say I did not perform up to their standards, can I go back on unemployment should I be laid off?

I am on unemployment now for 9 months and currently on the federal extension. Should I take a telemarketing job and then get laid off in a month or two due to the employer indicating I am not producing up to their standards, can I go back on unemployment again right away?

Is there a certain amount of hours you must work before you qualify for unemployment? Example: full time...I work about 33 hours a week right now

I have two part time jobs and was just laid-off one (hostess) due to their down-sizing. Can I claim unemployment even though I still have my other part-time job (waitressing)?
