OK, you need to dispute that the facts that are indispute in your case, do not fit the exclusion. Here is the problem with 43, as it has an exclusion from "employment", internships where credits are earned:
Services excluded from term "employment."
Sec. 43. Except as otherwise provided in section 42(6), the term "employment" does not include any of the following:
(m) Service performed by an individual less than 22 years of age [if you are over 22, tell the judge and provide proof, although clearly they have this informatoin] who is enrolled, at a nonprofit or public educational institution that normally maintains a regular faculty and curriculum and normally has a regularly organized body of students in attendance at the place where its educational activities are carried on, as a student in a full-time program, taken for credit at the institution, which program combines academic instruction with work experience, if the service is an integral part of the program and the institution has certified that fact to the employer. [Confirm this part - if your work service is not an integral part of the program, use that fact. If the school did not 'certify' same to the employer...use that fact, bring it up to the judge.] This subdivision does not apply to service performed in a program established for or on behalf of an employer or group of employers.
(q) Service performed for an employing unit other than a governmental entity or nonprofit organization and that is any of the following:
(ii) Service performed by a college student of any age, but only if the student's employment is a formal and accredited part of the regular curriculum of the school. [Argue that the employment is not 'formal and accredited', but since you got credits, I think you may be hard pressed on that one.] Perhaps argue against the "formal" issue, since you may not be able to argue "accredited."
Now, with regard to:
20 (a) Credit to Employer: 29 (9) Possible Ineligibiltyy; 62 (B) Misrep, Not Intentional [Clearly this is not an issue....you accurately reported the paid internship it seems];
29 (1) (B) Misconduct; [same as above]29 (1) (A) Voluntary leaving [Not, they said it was your last day, right? As they only hired you temporarily]
Use section 62 to ask for a waiver:
"...Furthermore, except in a case of an intentional false statement, misrepresentation, or concealment of material information, the commission may waive recovery of an improperly paid benefit if the payment was not the fault of the individual and if repayment would be contrary to equity and good conscience. ""
Show how it would wipe you out, show how tight it is getting by as it is, etc., on top of the fact that you reported everything as asked, paid your taxes, and the UI person taking your information indicated all was fine.
