My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: PA
Hereís my situation. Iím a web designer/developer in PA who was laid off in June 2009. I enrolled in UE. About a month later the company that laid me off offered me "as needed" contract work from home, which I accepted. But in fear that I wouldnít get paid for the contract work, since the company was going under, I did not report my earning to UE until I received pay from the contract work which was monthly. I continued to do this till the end of the year.
The company now merged/bought out by another larger company in Jan this year, which also offered me the same contract work. This new company had a work approval process that also made me worry about not getting paid for work being completed so I continued to not report earnings till I got paid. ThenÖ a couple of months ago, I got into a jam and needed cash so I didnít report earnings on 2 paychecks till months later. UE called me up, said there was a discrepancy and wanted information which I didnít provide. They sent me a questionnaire form regarding my employment statues, who I worked for and who I work for now, in a nut shell. Also the form requests paycheck stubs.
Iíve never been laid off or on unemployment before. I know what I did wasnít correct but I needed to make sure that I was financially covered. I really donít know what I should do or what I should expect to happen? Any help would really be appreciated.
