Maryland Unemployment Rules

In order to receive unemployment benefits in Maryland you must follow these rules:

1. You must be able to work, and are not disabled.
2. You must be actively looking for a job, and keeping a record of your job search.
3. You must file a weekly certification.
4. You must not make more than your weekly wage allowance. In some cases, you will be able to work while collecting unemployment - but only so much per week. Make sure when you apply for unemployment that you are very clear about how much you are able to earn each week. Your unemployment counselor will be able to tell you how much this is.

As long as you follow these Maryland unemployment rules, you will continue to receive your unemployment benefits.

As an employer what do I need to know before I fire one of my employees? If they worked part-time only does that qualify them for unemployment compensation? I.E. Only worked 20 hours a week?
