How do I report an employer who is misclassifying all of its employees as independent contractors so as to avoid paying Maryland state unemployment fees?

If a family qualifies for unemployment, can their children still attend pre-school? Is there monetary assistance for the family, since they will not be able to afford the cost of sending the child to pre-school.
Thank you

I know of someone who is working under the table making over 10.00 an hr and she is in the process of trying to collect unemployment wich she walked out of her job in the first place now there having court hearings but they don't know she is working. Is this fraud? Can I report her? And how?

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO REPORT THIS INDIVIDUAL? THE ANSWER IS NO!!!!! YOU HAVE NO WAY IN PROVING THAT IN FACT THIS INDIVIDUAL DOES WORK; BEING THAT THEY WORK UNDER THE TABLE. WHAT BUSINESS IS IT OF YOURS ANYHOW? SOUNDS LIKE YOUR HATING AND THATS NOT COOL. GET A LIFE ASAP!!!!!

I’m not receiving dependent benefits (which I believe is $8 per child in the state of Maryland). I don’t understand why this amt is not added to my bi-weekly UI check. Can someone please explain in detail why I am not receiving it? When I applied for UI benefits, I made it aware that I have one dependent, under the age of 18 who I have full custody of. The lady I spoke to on the phone didn’t really have a true understanding. I’m hoping someone will be able to assist me and help me possibly collect my dependent care UI benefits.

I just filed my bi-weekly claim, and it only let me file for one week of the two i was supposed to. It completely skipped a week, is that going to affect my payment in a couple days? i'm worried now, there's no logical reason for a week to even be skipped, i have never fallen off schedule. PLEASE HELP!

Why do employees get to report hours worked in a week? They can just lie about this. Shouldn't the employer be in charge of this?

If I live in Pennsylvania but work in Maryland do I file unemployment in Maryland or Pennsylvania? If I only have 17 months on this job in Maryland but also have 3 years of consecutive employment for another job but that job was held in Pennsylvania. Need to know where to make the claim.

My employer suddenly eliminated my job, took my salary but told me I could sell for commission only. Can i get unemployment? The sales position is calling companies to sell lights and is on commission base only.
