My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: California
Hello, I just started collecting UI from California. In addition to the normal wages I received from employers in the past I also generated extra income (that was reported) and was paid a fee as a vendor/service provider and was issued a 1099 at the end of each year for that extra income.
From time to time I will be still be able to generate that income even while "unemployed". I am talking about once every couple of months or so.
Now that I am collecting UI I need to report that income. The question I have is regarding the need to enter "Total Hours Worked" on the "Continued Claim" form. I know from past experience that they will contact the "employer" to confirm what I was paid and when I worked. The "employer" in this case is not going to know what days or what hours I worked to generate the fee that I charged them.
Any suggestions as to how to correctly report the "Total Hours Worked" in this case. I can easily record the days and hours worked but the people paying me will have no way to confirm those hours......?????
