I was collecting unemployment and i found a job in October 2010 and continued to work there until January 2011, I have had a history of depression/anxiety problems and it got really bad in december 2010, I went to my doctor and was put on anti-depressants but it just made things worse and eventually I couldnt take it anymore so I put in a notice and told the company I was leaving for another job.. I am doing better now with a new medication and actively seeking work, I know I can establish a claim from a previous employer but im not sure If I will be eligible since I quit.

I am doing some part time work, starting last week, and continuing through the middle of next week. I went online yesterday to report what I earned, which was more than my weekly UI benefit (and what i will earn this week will also exceed that weekly benefit). Now it appears my account has been locked out. Is that normal or coincidental? Does this mean I have to refile or am I in some type of trouble for trying to accurately report my income?

I certified 3 weeks on time before a decision was rendered on my behalf to recieve UI benefits, the decision was in my favor but I see that only 1 of the 3 weeks was paid, will I get paid for the other two weeks? I was told that I would, but have yet to recieve a payment

If I collect unemployment benefits, will that be known to future and previous employers, and their attorneys, whom with I may have legal disputes? Thank you.

I have an employee that is currently working full time and is drawing social security. They cannot run a register so they only stock. Can I cut them down to part time without them being eligible for unemployment? If not, can I move them from a stock person to a cashier? If they quit will they be eligible for unemployment since we changed their position (but not their pay)?

I have a Part time employee that averages 27 hours a week. Can we cut her hours without her being able to draw unemployment.

I have been receiving benefits from Georgia while living in Ohio. I recently was hired but have only started out working a couple hours last week and won't work again until June 1. I was told I had to submit a new claim to continue receiving benefits. Why do I have to submit this new claim instead of them just adding on the part time job?
