First of all to qualify for benefits u have to have been employed 6 consecutive month. The amount of weekly benefits u receive will be determined by your income from the year before. U must turn in your income to the dept of labor for the week you are claiming. The dept of Labors week begins on sunday and ends on saturday. u must claim all earnings.

your employer must b the one to pay the unemployment benefits. however it is not up to them if they pay you it is up to the dept of labor to view your case, and to reach an agreement/ decision.
