A pending appeal would not affect your right to UI if you find less than full-time work during the period in which your appeal is pending.
You remain unemployed and eligible for benefits during any week of less than full-time work, if the wages payable to you with respect to the week, when reduced by twenty-five dollars ($25) or 25 percent of the wages payable, whichever is greater, do not equal or exceed your weekly benefit amount. Example:
1. You worked 30 hours;
2. Your regular weekly UI benefit would have been $450;
3. You earned $474.99.
If you earned $475, that would equal your weekly benefit minus $25, and would make you ineligible for UI benefits.
Also, if you accept full-time work for two weeks or longer, you must submit a new application for benefits, based upon a new claim.
1. Don't earn more than your weekly UI benefit minus $25.
2. Don't work two weeks consecutively for the same employer, and;
3. Don't work a 40 hour week.
Hope this helps.
