California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
That sounds good but how do I get them to focus on that because they do not even respond to written correspondence?
Thanks for your help! I will respond to them as you suggested.
I received a form letter today which denied my claim and referred me to Section 2612 of the California Unemployment Code which states:
"2612. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, except as provided in subdivision (b) of Section 2611, in determining the benefit rights of any person who cannot establish a valid claim pursuant to Section 2652 because he or she is unemployed during the normal disability base period established pursuant to Section 2610, there shall be excluded from the disability base period those quarters during which the person performed no services in employment for 60 days or more and was actively seeking work. For all quarters so excluded, there shall be substituted an equal number of quarters immediately preceding the commencement of the normal disability base period. Benefit rights under this section shall terminate for any disability benefit period that begins when the substitution quarters no longer contain sufficient wages to establish a valid claim under Section 2652."
Section 2611 states:
"2611. "Disability base period," with respect to an individual who has an unexpired benefit year for unemployment compensation benefits, shall be: (a) The same as the disability base period in Section 2610 if the individual has sufficient qualifying earnings in that disability base period. (b) The same as the base period used to establish the benefit year for unemployment compensation benefits if the individual does not have sufficient qualifying earnings in the disability base period in Section 2610"
Section 2652 states:.
"2652. An individual cannot establish a valid claim unless he has during his disability base period been paid wages for employment by employers of not less than three hundred dollars ($300)."
I have no idea what this all means. Can you put into plain English for m?
