My son was terminated from his job (one which he had for over 3 years). He appropriately applied for UI benefits and the adjudicator determined that the reason for his separation allowed for payment of benefits. However, his employer has NOW appealed the decision of the adjudicator and it is my understanding that a hearing before an impartial appeal referee is now pending. All this time now, since my son's termination almost 6 weeks ago, he has received NO UI payments... NONE. Will he continue to receive NO payments throughout this process? What if his employer continues in his efforts to disallow benefits, even if they are upheld by the referee, and my son's employer then appeals to the Employment Security Board of Review. What happens if the Employment Security Board of Review affirms my son's eligibility for UI benefits, but his employer then takes his case to court? Does my son still continue to draw NO UI benefits while this entire process plays out?

This situation has become very disconcerting and exasperating and I would certainly appreciate your reply. My son is devastated by what has happened to him these past six weeks and is distraught and mentally exhausted. I'm sure he would be asking these questions if his mental state was up to it.

Thank you in advance.

I am currently receiving unemployment compensation benefits through the state of Nevada. I have been looking for full time work in my state as my full time job. I would like to be able to market myself better by furthering my education. My question is: Will I be able to continue to receive my weekly benefit if I decide to attend an online University while also looking for a job? I would like to take online courses at night or in my spare time not to interfere with my job search or to interfere if I do find employment. It doesn't make sense that the state would just cut me off because I checked the little box that says "I am attending school". I was told that if I check that box, it would throw up red flags and my claim would immediately be denied! Has anyone had any experiences they would like to share? I have seen many other people asking the same questions, but we can never get a straight answer. Thanks.

I have enjoyed being with a company five years. I recently gave 3months notice as I'm moving out of state to be closer to my elderly parents, I still have two months left, they are interviewing people while I'm still there each day in front of me. If I'm let go before my resignation date, do I qualify for unemployment?

If you have been a salaried employee and the company now wants you to go strictly commision, and that would drop your income from $100,000 yearly to about $30,000 can you collect unemployment?

I attempted to file online numerous times, the website said to contact social security on an information issue, I contacted them
and they said it was a problem with the database at unemployment, I then called and they admitted to it, I then processed my claim. The first attempt to file was on the 30th of December, my last day of work was the first, I tried a couple more times to file online because social security told me that they would clear the information through unemployment. The day I finally was able to file was the 9th and they claim I can only receive benefits starting from the 6th, can I still receive that first week of benefits that I missed and how do I go about that?

I received severance and will receive checks starting in Nov. 2013. I was told to make weekly calls when I was let go in February. When I called for the week of June 24 - 30 I received confirmation but when I called the next week, the message said that I did not call the week before but left no phone number to call to resolve this but instructed me to send a fax with explanation; which I did. I continue to call each week but I still get the same message. How can I resolve this? Who can I talk to?

I have been at this job for over a year. I am currently on intermittent FMLA. A lot of times I have to stay home or leave work early because of my illnes' symptoms.
This has brought my paycheck to approximately 1/3 of what my pay should actually be, had I worked full hours.
Will I be able to collect unemployment if I quit my job due to my illness and flare-ups that make me call in?
