Hi, my name is ***** ***** I thank you for your inquiry. I have been practicing Employment law
for 19+ years and look forward to assisting you.
I was laid off back in 07/11. I filed for unemployment. Went back to work in December of 2014. I was laid off again 06/30. I filed for unemployment and the filing continues from my previous claim. I am confused. Should it not be a new claim with the most recent employer?
This is typically a matter of what "base year period" you have. If you were laid off 6/30/2015, your claim is dated in June 2015 then your base year period on a new claim may be 1/2014 - 12/2014. However, you did not earn sufficient moneys in that time to be eligible for any Unemployment insurance
coverage. As such, they may look to see if they can use a base period where you DID have enough earnings to make a claim for insurance benefits and if you have enough funds remaining to collect.
I hope this helps! My goal is to provide you with excellent and accurate service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
