Michigan Unemployment Eligibility

In order to establish unemployment eligibility in Michigan you have to:

1. Be a resident of Michigan. If you are not a resident of Michigan, but worked in Michigan at your last job, you should still have Michigan unemployment eligibility.
2. Have worked and earned income in Michigan.
3. You must not be disabled.
4. You must be able to work.
5. You must be actively looking for a new job.
6. You must have lost your job through no fault of your own. If you quit your job or were fired for 'just cause' you may not be eligible to collect unemployment in Michigan. Every case is different, so if you lost your job -- be sure to apply to unemployment in case you are indeed eligible to receive unemployment benefits.

There are special rules that apply to unemployment elibility for military personnel and union workers, so check with your mility or union representative for these rules.

I work at a university as a student employee and have been working this job for two years. I do not have work-study, so I'm paid by the department. The school's now cutting jobs all over the department. If my boss gets laid off, I will too. Am I eligible? Thanks!

I have worked with my company out of state for the last four years. I have been transferred to Michigan and have been living and working here the last three months. I may be potentially looking at a temporary layoff. I still have a out of state ID/Drivers license. Can I qualify for Michigan Unemployment Benefits? Do I need to change my Driver License before I apply for benefits?

I work in a private school. Last year I worked full time (40 hrs/wk). Now the position has been reduced to 16 hours a week. can I get unemployment if I get offered this job but don't take it because it is part time? If so how much would be my unemployment compensation and duration till I could find a full time job?

I worked ¾ to full time at one job and was part time at another. I got laid off on Sept 20 from part time job due to lack of work orders coming in, and now I will be out of work at the ¾ to full time job as the business is closing it’s doors today. I found another part time job that is under 20 hour’s week….but I need the 40+ hours of income. Do I still qualify for unemployment by taking the very part time job? I worry that I won’t be able to find another job soon and will need that 2nd half of income.

Hello, I recently was fired in no wrong doing on my part from a job I worked at for 4 years. I am eligible for unemployment and am currently collecting. I now got an offer to work for a construction company. I will most likely only be working for a month or two because winter season is coming up. When I get laid off, will I be able to go back to my unemployment since I will only have 1-2 months of work with this job? will I be able to collect off of my last claim? Please get back to me and let me know. Thank you.

I work part-time at a corporation (a bank), and have been there for about 4 years (on and off with this company since 1999, but the company has gone through name changes/buyouts). I also go to college, and am getting quite close to finishing up my degree. My NORMAL scheduled hours are 12-3pm. One of my classes for the upcoming semester starts at 4pm (the bank closes at 5pm) on Mondays and Wednesdays. My employer is telling me that I CAN NOT take this class, because of the rare possibility that they MAY need me to work till 5pm (one more hour!). This rarely happens (that I am needed till 5pm), but I was told I NEED to be available IN CASE they need me (there are 5 full time employees and myself). I work only 20 hours per week. Basically, they are saying I can not schedule ANYTHING during banking hours, because I need to be available to them. This is denying me the ability to further my education. This job will NEVER become full-time. Would I qualify for unemployment if I quit, since they are denying me the option to further my education?

I was just terminated from company after over 9 years of dedicated service. First write up given to me was unfair as I
Was skipped through the levels of verbal and written and taken
To a decision day based on that I did not follow up on a lower
Level associates work being done and accepted their verbal
That they were done. Termination was given 6 months later
For misconduct due to telling an associate that after the bad
Tour we had had by the Distrct manager that if I was going down so was she. I wrongly said this on the sales floor. Will I

I am in same boat only i went on FMLA in late june 2012,i was off for a neck surgery not work related but have MS and multiple ailments that were making work unbearable so I was offered a surgery from a neuro surgeon who said I should be back to work in 4 weeks,I could only afford to be off for 1 month as I am only person working and have 3 kids and a wife/mortage/car loan etc so I was worse off at the 4 week follow up then before the surgery,she then added 6 weeks of phys therapy and couldnt get a appt til yesterday when I was given my letter from surgeon saying I cannot perform my job duties as a forklift operator and will not be able to in the future,so now i borrowed 3 thousand bucks to pay bills while off the company said they have no other positions to offer me so I am wondering if I will be able to get back pay unemployment as I am being given a "medical discharge" and am filing for disability but was advised i can apply for unemployment while that is determined.I have to cash my small 401k out in order to pay my debts off from borrowing to pay bills while off.So my question is when I apply do I put date I left for fmla as i received no monies from employer(8 years) while off or the date I am removed from their payroll?Which will probably be tommorrow as far as I know.

My position is no longer available, they have offered me 2 other positions. I am not trained or qualified for one of the positions and the other I would not be able to accept as it is a varying schedule and I don't have that flexibility with my family. Since I am turning down positions would I be able to qualify for unemployment?

I worked for the same company for 15 years. I was laid off for lack of work. Before I was laid off, I had surgery and was on FMLA. I waited until I was able to work again, meaning the surgery was in December of '08 and I started looking for a job in July of '09 and collecting unemployment.

In late 2010 I was told I should never have received unemployment insurance. I needed a doctor's note before I returned to work. I was never told that. The state of Michigan / the company I work for is suing me for the unemployment benefits I received even though my doctors have told me I can still do the same work I was doing before which was sedentary computer work. If I can still do the same job and was never told that I needed a doctors' note to return to a job than why do I have to repay the unemployment benefits. I'm on my last appeal and was denied an oral hearing. The original determination was that there was no intent to deceive the State of Michigan. The ruling stated a law giving the example of a nurse injured on the job lifting a patient, however if the nurse is still able to draw blood and do other nursing duties as long as she doesn't lift than she is still considered a nurse and can work as a nurse. Why am I being told I'm not capable of doing the same sedentary job that I was doing before without a doctor's note? Why would I get a doctor's note if I didn't have a job or a person to turn it in to? As it is now, I will end up filing for bankruptcy; I didn't work for almost 3 years...I can't afford to pay back the unemployment I received.

Hello! I was working at a local bank for over two years. In late August 2012, I was offered a long-term substitute teaching position (which I thought would turn into me being hired). I quit the bank in August 2012, I have been paid through a substitute teaching company ever since then. I am not employed by the school district, but I am subbing from the very first day of school until the very last day of school this year (ALL YEAR). Can I draw unemployment as a substitute teacher for the summer? And if not, can I still draw off of the bank even though I quit?

THANKS!

Hi,

I previously worked for a company and got laid off. I then got unemployment for several weeks. They disputed my need to receive unemployment, and I was unanware of the dispute(I had moved) and then there was a three way call with a judge, the company owner and myself(who was absent because I was unaware). The judge ruled in my bosses favor, so in turn, everything I received was ruled as an overpayment, and I was unable to receive benefits immediately after that.
It is now 3/20/2013 obviously, am i ineligible for unemployment because of my past incident? I work for a completely different company in a completely different line of work.
Thanks.

In October I left my job to take new employment, notifying the employer in advance. At Christmas my new employer laid me off for two weeks with a return date. I filed for unemployment benefits as instructed by my employer, as did 12 other new employees I started with. Everyone was paid their benefits, except two of us, despite all of us having essentially identical circumstances. I received paperwork which I had to return to UIA, which I did. Weeks later, still having heard nothing. I went to UIA where it became clear to myself and the helpful person there, that there was confusion about my situation in their main office and she approved me and said I would get paid the following week. However, I was not paid and two weeks later Ifinally found a number where I could talk to the appropriate people. The individual seemed perturbed that I had talked to some one at the UIA office, and not interested in what we had discussed at the office, nor anything I felt they might be confused about (they seemed to think I was permanently laid off). Now, three months later, they have denied my unemployment for those two weeks because I voluntarily quit my previous job. Since all of my work mates were in the same situation, I don't understand why I would be denied. The other individual who had his unemployment held up received his benefits the same day I was denied, though he had never quit his job, he just took a leave of absence "for family reasons" and never returned. While I intend to file a protest, I would be grateful for any advice or perhaps some notion of their reasoning. I can't believe a person can be denied two weeks of benefits for leaving a job to take immensely better employment, while 12 others can get those benefits under the same circumstances. Thanks for any help!

I am an adjunct professor working for a local university. I know that because of the "reasonable assurance" rule that adjuncts cannot claim unemployment over the summer because they are generally guaranteed to resume work in the fall. However, I was just informed that the class I was going to teach has been given to a full-time professor, so I won't be able to teach in that semester. Since I don't have reasonable assurance anymore, does that mean I can collect unemployment for this summer?

I have been working at a job for 14 years. IN the summer time I would work 40 hrs. plus. IN the winter January thru May things would slow down. I never received Time and a half for all the overtime hours. My boss would make me save them for my slow time of year to use. But when I used my overtime hours in the winter I didn't get time and a half. She would make out payroll and hide the fact of my overtime to the person that wrote out payroll. Is that legal? She also would shred our time sheets every year. AT I would come to work at 8:00am and work until 11:pm,then have to get up at 3:30 the next morning and work another eight hour shift with out any time and a half. Now that the Obama Care is in effect they've cut my hours to 24 a week and have hired another girl to work the remaining 16 hours of my work week. In the winter I was informed that I would be cut back to one or two days. DO I qualify for underemployment or unemployment? Can I get my time and a half they owe me.? Can they fire me for getting underemployment ? Also I haven't had a raise in five years because they claim I make to much money.

I worked for a company for about 10 months and quit about 2 weeks ago because the company was slow and had numerous rounds of layoffs. Eventually the company had to stop production because the costumer wasn't paying when they were suppose to so we got transferred to another company within that building which we were not qualified for. Being fed up with the company giving us various dates on when we would be back to our original positions, I left to pursue another job. Will I still be able to collect unemployment benefits even if I quit?

my wife works at a salon as receptionist 30 to 40hr.wk and is paid every 2 wks.
on Wed. The problem is the last several months she has been told by the business owner to hold up cashing her check until
there is enough money in the bank to cover her check. Sometimes is days later sometimes weeks after the check was issued. The company is way behind on building rent and utilities.

She has worked at the salon for several years ,last few months have been rough for our income inconsistency.
Question: does she have to quit or wait to the company goes out of business to collect unemployment? If she quits is there a delay or reductions in getting benefits?
If company shuts is doors will she still be able to get unemployment

I am wondering if I can get unemployment if I quit my job for a hostile work envoirment and retaliation for going over the supervisor's head over issues where I work. Since then my I have been transferred, my hours have been changed and 3 younger people have been promoted to do my job that do not meet the job requirement's set forth by our company policy. If I file a complaint with the EEOC will that hurt my chances with unemployment.
