Ive been a business owner for the last 6 years in Orange County,

Resolved Question:

I've been a business owner for the last 6 years in Orange County, CA. However, Due to the economy and struggling since last November 2008 my business partner and I stopped receiving paychecks due to loss of business. We’ve paid into our unemployment insurance for the last 6 years….. Unfortunately, the economy’s has worsen so we’ve made a corporate decision (legal minutes) to find a new job opportunity due to business/personal heart ship. We are currently packing since we no longer are receiving any business. We contacted EDD to file a claim 2 weeks ago. I told the rep we had no income since November 2008, packing and only taking calls from collectors we owe debts to! She asked if we’ are leasing month to month or or on a contract… I said we are month to month our property manager cut our rent in half and keeping our last and first month @ security deposit to help us get through the months. What are our rights with EDD if denied?

If the unemployment department denied your claim, the EDD will mail you written notice that it has denied you benefits. The letter will include notification of your right to appeal the decision. The time to file an appeal notice is extremely short, typically a few days from the date the EDD MAILED the letter to you, not when you received it. Filing a notice of appeal is fairly simple. Just use the form provided by the EDD. Appeals are very informal. They take place at the local EDD office. The judge is an administrative law judge.

 

After the hearing, the judge mails both sides a written decision, typically within days of the hearing. The losing party can appeal the judge's decision.

 

Self-employment does not usually qualify for UI benefits coverage. However, it says to contact EDD so they can determine if the individual is entitled to benefits. In other words it is handled on a case by case basis.

I agree with you and I think you probably should, but what they will probably look for is pay check stubs issued from the company to you or your husband. I think you have a good argument.
