Hello, I have got one check so far, I got a janitor license trying to get some work. I made 40 and 110 and told them at the unemployment web site. I thought a check was coming and did not. They stopped my checks because I earned $150.00 in a 2 week period. Also something about getting a license also. Do I need to void my cleaning license or don't do any thing about it. I need the money to take care of my family. I get $275.00 a week. Please help me with how to correct this problem so I can feed my family and pay the bills. They told me it had to go to a committee to see if still able to get a check anymore. Thanks Char
I have no idea whether you earned the money from covered employment .. or through self employment.
But, if the janitorial work is a job covered by unemployment insurance then here's how those partial part-time wages should play out.
Any week in which you work less than full-time and earn less than your weekly benefit amount the state of Florida will first disregard 8 x times the federal minimum wage from your earnings.
Then they begin reducing the amount in excess of that from your benefit amount, dollar for dollar to arrive at the partial unemployment benefit amount for the same week you earned the wages in.
Currently the federal minimum wage is 6.55 until July 24, 2009 at which time it will become 7.25
Eight times 6.55= 52.40
I don't see how $40, or %110 would stop benefits in any week .. unless the state thinks you're self employed.
Committee? What committee?
