That depends on your more recent job and the basis for leaving it. If you were laid off, and it was a true job as an employee (not an independent contractor), then what matters is how much of that year that you've been gone from the previous job did you work?
You have to have worked enough to receive 10 times what your weekly benefit would have been (so, if your weekly benefit would have been $200, you have to earn at least $2000 to undo the disqualification) if you hadn't been disqualified. Once you've done that, they have to look at what you earned during that time frame for "base period" purposes. Your unemployment would be based on the earnings from that new job.
