Question about unemployment benifits in multiple states.
Ok so here is the story.
I have worked in Northern nevada as a dealer for the past 4 years in South Lake Tahoe. I live on the California side but worked in nevada for 4 years. I was let go from my job in January 2009, I received no unemployment afterwards, Well fast forward to april and i took a sales job for about 6 weeks in California where i made next to no money. I left The sales job to take a job in las vegas as a dealer. Well 2 months later i was laid off. So i have been collecting unemployment ever since. Well yesterday my unemployment ran out, so i call nevada unemployment to file for my extension. So i go through all the questions and the lady on the phone told me i was approved for my extension.
Then she says since i have worked in California this year i have to file a claim in California before i can receive my extension in Nevada. But my problem is i wasnt laid off of my job in California i left it to go to another job and was then laid off. I also made about 70% less money in california then i did in nevada. So she told me i have to file a claim in California and that has to run out before i can get my nevada extension.
What happens if i am denied in California Because of not making enough money or not being laid off?
Will i then get my nevada extension?
Someone please help I have no idea what to expect.
It just seems odd that i was approved for my extension in Nevada but have to go through California. Thanks
You left me in the dust way back when you said you filed in Nevada for the lay off. It seems to me that at that time, the unemployment application would have asked for all employer during the last 18 months.
Even though I don't understand how things got screwed up .. this is what I think I know:) ..
If you had subsequent work after voluntarily quitting a job in California and that work lasted for at least two months, that work should have purged any VQ disqualification that California may impose on you .. I think
CA's VQ disqualification is to return to work and earn 5 times your weekly benefit amount.
The concern is that Nevada should really have known about that job you quit and I hope you didn't exclude it because Nevada's VQ disqualification is to return to work and earn at least your WBA in each of 10 weeks.
I'm wondering if Nevada was made aware of your CA employment .. when you filed in NV ?
