My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Georgia
I was laid off from a job making $45k a year in November. I filed for unemployment and received it. The first week in December I was called by UPS for a temporary driver helper position. Upon speaking with the guy all I was told is that I would be helping the driver, it was a group interview. He told me HR would call and I would go to orientation. I failed to ask what the pay or hours would be. So when called to orientation I asked there, and was told that I needed to call the guy who I originally talked to, which I did and left a message which he never returned. The next day I was called in and aked to go out with the driver, I explained the situation and they said they would find out for me and let me know. Stupid decision in my part. They called later that day and informed me I would only work a max of 35 hrs a week @ $8.50 a hour. Unfortunately I am a single father and have to pay for childcare and that would not cover it and usual bills. So I respectively resigned the same day, I was then contacted by DOL and told I had to file a new claim on UPS because I worked one day! I have now been denied benefits completely for a job that was temporary! Is this really how it works?
