My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: California.
I am currently receiving UI benefits and am also a candidate for a temporary two-week job in which I would be classified as a 1099 independent contractor coordinating an event.
1. If I am hired, will I be able to continue to receive benefits after this project is completed, considering my payment ($1,500) is much more than my weekly claim amount?
2. If so, how should I fill out my claim form so that my payments won't stop (or placed on hold for a couple of weeks to a month)?
3. Would my potential, future employer receive notice that I am receiving the benefits?
4. Lastly, does anyone have any advice for someone very much worried about losing benefits for a short-term job? I am very much eager to jump back into the workforce, but at the same time, I am stressed about jeopardizing the little money I receive in UI.
I have scoured the EDD website and also have called the UI line endlessly without any questions answered. If anyone has a place of reference (I have already looked up and down http://www.edd.ca.gov/), I would greatly appreciate it!! Thanks in advance!
