    I have been employed with the same ice cream store for 28 years as the manager. We are a seasonal store that closes Nov. 30 and reopens March 1. For the last 28 years I was paid during the winter months to do office work for the store.(very parttime) This year employer is not paying me for the winter.
    I filed unemployment and received it for 3 weeks and then received a letter that I owed the money back because I was not unemployed and still attached to stores payroll. I filed an appeal but was just wandering where I stand. Store is closed, keys turned in, there is no payroll to be attached to.

    You'll have to wait & see what they decide on your appeal. It seems to me you should be entitled to UI benefits since you are not working or getting paid.

      2 months later- I won the appeal but the next day employer called to ask if I was returning in the spring.
      The job he was offering was 6 months full time, 2 months closed 3 days a week and store closed for 4 months. Hourly pay the same. I said no.
      Before this I was a 12 month employee. Employer called ESC and reported i refused the job. ESC stopped my unemployment. I am appealing again.
      My question is would I be required to take a parttime , less secure job than before?
      Thanks for your help!

        You'll have to see what happens during the appeal. You did turn down offered employment.

          Probably. The state would prefer you have some income now, rather than no income for the unsforeseeable future. If you took the part-time job, you could use the extra time to search for another one.

            ASUMOM, you may want to consult with a lawyer before you make any more decisions on your own about this stuff.

              Partial Ui Benefits

              Never refuse work - any work for any pay. Keep filing your UI benefits and tell them what you earn - if you make less than your benefit amount, they pay the difference. Yeah it's a pain in the butt but at least you keep your benefits or work which shows you're willingness and not unemployed of your own choice which is always reason for denying UI benefits.

                nckrystalblue, this thread is nearly 4 months old. I'm sure the poster has made a decision by now.
