My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: KY
I worked this past year and I am temporarily laid off because I work in tourism. I was laid off on Jan 22 and will go back March 15. I filed my unemployment on the 22 and I was given a date to start requesting my checks. I have done so twice now and my checks have not been sent out. It took me two trips to my local office to see why I was given credit for weeks claimed but not given a check. Apparently it's because I'm a college student. I go to school 13 hours this semester. I have went to school the entire time I worked for my employer and carried 18 hours the previous two semesters. Even during the summer semesters I was full time at school. I worked full time in summer and part time in fall/winter. They said it would take approx. six weeks to investigate. Do people ever get denied unemployment because they go to school? It is obvious, and I explained it on my appication, that I was able to work and go to school full time. I put my schedule on my application which is 9-3 on Moday and 9-12 on Wednesday and Thursday. I have plenty of time to work full time plus I was let go because I'm seasonal and it was no fault of mine. If it takes longer than six weeks what can I do to push it? By the time I get my back pay, if I get it, I'll be back at work. I don't even know why they care if I'm a definite call back and it's in my file that I'm getting called back.
