My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: PA
I just got laid off and I am considering doing freelance work which may not be very frequent and woudl like to claim unemployment compensation for the weeks that i don't work.
My questions are:
How can I make sure that I am NOT determined to be "self-employed" or a "business" which will disqualify me from receiving unemployment compensation?
As an independent contractor, can I use a name such as ABC Graphics to do freelance work, have a bank account in that name and also and receive checks?
Any limits to the amount of earnings I receive in a particular time period that may effect my unemployment compensation for other weeks that I don't work?
