  • help,no results South Carolina

    I being working with same company for 3 years and we have slowed down in work like the rest of the nation but here is my complaint they hired me at 40 hours a week, we only get 10 to 15 hours a week now and this has being going on for about 6 weeks,they the employer wont sign me up for partial unemployment,and yes i've sign myself up at employment office,but i still have'nt had any results that's been about 6 weeks ago,nothing whats going on here!!!1 thing the employer did say is they would'nt turn in any partial unemployment papers because that would cause there ins.they pay for uneployment ins. to go up ,,,,thats the reason they have it right they are not following the law on this,,someone please tell me what i can do,, i have no clue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i.m losing my power because of this,,and water will be next .. then phone ,,,ect,,,,,

    You need to contact your unemployment office. Based on what you say you should qualify for benefits

      Your employer refusing to respond to the unemployment office's inquiry will not stop benefits from being granted. It might possibly delay it somewhat but if the employer does not respond, the UI office will respond on the basis of what you have provided. So while it might cause a short delay, it won't hurt you in the long run. If the employer thinks that failure to respond will mean benefits are denied, they do not understand how it works.

      BTW, the employer is not legally obligated to respond; he is not violating any laws if he chooses not to. As indicated above, it does not cause benefits to be denied.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

          Your employer has nothing to say about this. They don't "turn in" anything, except respond to the notice from the state that you have filed and then they need do so only if they disagree with what you said.

          You opened a claim and had a one-week waiting period. This waiting period applies only to NEW claims. You should be filing for continuing benefits for each benefit period (normally, biweekly) and reporting the wages you earned during each applicable week.

          Did you want advice or didn't you?

            can't report earnings

            why is it i can't report my earnings for partial unemployment, when i call to claim the earnings for the week i did'nt work the recordings say i can't report earnings at this time and this is bi-weekly {like 2 weeks in row i can't turn in my 1 hour a week that i earned} and when i go to employment office they tell me to call it in, i do and get the same message [can't report earnings at this time] without claiming that i'm unemployed i can't draw partial unemployment,, also is it possibe the employer can block this in anyway! is there any advice on getting a lawyer to help me in this matter is there anyone that could check this employer to see if they are going by the law on this anyone or any law, can anything be done?

              We have no idea why. You're going to have to ask the agency.

              No, the employer cannot "block" your benefits. The employer CAN protest your receiving benefits. But you would have been notified if there was a protest or appeal pending.

                do i have to sign

                i have noticed one thing about signing claim form at work theres alot of confussing when i try to claim partial unemployment,,do i have to sign claim form at work, can i deny signing and just call it in myself can they disqualify me for this,, they are doing somthing to mess it up - what i don't know maybe falsify records,, or somthing in that matter

                  You do not have to sign anything at work. All you have to do is call the unemployment office, explain the sitution, and do what they tell you. THEY will contact the employer and THEY will make the decision as to whether you qualify or not. Your employer does not get to make that decision.
