  • unemployment compensation

    hi not sure if this is in the right forum but wanted to give it a shot.

    if someone who was employed as a CPA broke off from their firm to attempt to start there own business and after about 6 months finally came to the realization it wasn't working and closed their business, can they file for unemployment? they were self employed during the six months and were employed for 4 years with their previous employer.

    thanks for any insight.

    Well, he could file, but it's almost certain he would not get UI benefits. He quit the last job he had where he was an employee. You don't get UI benefits when you quit to start your own business.

        He is not unemployed. He is self-employed and he has no clients. That is not the same thing. And even if it were, what is he going to do? Fire himself because the "company" has no business income? And whose fault is that? The owner/company/employee here are (is?) one and the same.

        That is the risk one takes when one goes into business for themselves.

          The CPA in question voluntarily quit his last job so he's not eligible for unemployment benefits for that stint of employment and I very much doubt he's been paying in UC taxes on himself for the past six months so no, he is not eligible for unemployment benefits.

          Your friend needs to either find a new job or get some clients.
