I collected unemployment
compensation in 2011 in Massachusetts.
During that time a school asked me for advice regarding a project they were planning.
There was no contract and there would be no compensation in the project did not materialize. They also knew that, if I found a job, I would have to move on.
The work/ advice was given by by e-mail and phone and and was probably 2-3 hours , total during a week.
After 5-6 months, project did move forward and upon completion, I assisted in the pricing for one week and was paid.
I reported the compensation to to Mass Unemployment and did not claim for the week ,I was paid.
I met with a representative of Mass Unemployment , explained the situation and was given the OK, to resume benefits.
I also reported my earnings to Mass and the IRS for tax purposes.
Did I do anything wrong ?
