My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: ca
so i've been receiving unemployment checks for a few months now. I just got my claim form for a few weeks ago so that I can fill out to get unemployment check for that period. But during 2 those weeks, I'm not sure what to say
Since I've been applying to grad schools as well as looking for jobs, I visited a school for a few days. I was also working part-time, but my employer let me take time off to go visit that school. But since I've had to visit schools for the past few weeks now, its been hard for me to continue working for them. Does this count as 'refusing work'?
Also, I received an offer for a full-time job, but it paid LESS than that part-time job and it required a 1-2 hour long commute so I was hesitant to accept it. When I told the employer that I wanted to start 2 weeks after the deadline to accept the offer or not, he was ok with that. But when I asked about how flexible the work hours were, he decided that this job wasn't for me and suggested I look elsewhere. Does this also count as me 'refusing work'?
Because I also mentioned that I would likely leave the part-time job due to the full-time offer, it was kind of assumed that I would leave that part-time job. But since the full-time job offer was withdrawn, and I'm about to finish visiting schools, I may get in contact with that for that part-time job again.
For 'reason no longer working or still working', do I mention that it was because I got a full-time job offer? Or because I had to visit schools? Either way, would I still be eligible for benefits? I know EDD encourages FULL time work, not PART time, so its not like its a big violation I made by 'refusing' the part time job, right?
