Hey TS, did you qualify for the Lost Wages Assistance program? Check the Kentucky department of labor website and see if there are any other assistance programs you qualify for and get your application(s) in as soon as possible.

Are you currently looking for a new job? If so, what type of employment are you pursing?

My child's school closed due to covid 19, which caused attendance issues and I was fired from my staffing agency job. Does the work search requirement being waived save me from the requirements of followup and job search thru the agency to qualify for unemployment benefits? I didn't realize you have to contact them within 24 hrs and then wait three days to file. Does this still apply due to work search requirements being waived? Thanks #help #eligibility #unemployed #momlife #thestruggleisreal #coronavirus #unemployment

I would apply for the pandemic unemployment not the regular one. If you have reduced hours they will help. Just apply and choose the debit card method

Why can't we get a letter stating that we are running out of money or if its a problem call us before we run out? They are just leaving people hanging with no money that's not how the world supposed to work today . Don't just leave us hanging like they don't care. Disrespectful people #eligibility

@Brenda Harmon-Roberson did you get a letter with not great news concerning your benefits? How's your job search been during this period of time?

The people that work in government do NOT care about us. They have a job.

Anyone have advice for my situation? The situation: I received unemployment back in 03/2020 (from an old employer) to 07/2020. Because of COVID I had to move back in with my parents...I decided to get a job near them. I did and everything was great up until Sept 11th. Where the doctor (this is dental practice) cussed at me, threw a sandwich at me, and then what got me to leave for good was: Him and my other supervisor cornered me so he could apologize. I ignored him and tried to keep talking and he flicks my ear hard. So hard I tell “don’t touch me” and it even startled me but he did it again. Mind you this ear hurts because I hear ringing in that ear. Anyway long story long.... I quit that job thinking well who in their right mind will say those were adequate working conditions. Nope Unemployment strikes saying that I have no proof and that I will get no money. After WEEKS of being on hold.
Is there anything I can do at this point. I’ve applied to jobs like crazy and swear I have proof where they just straight denying me. Please if anyone has information or lawyers info let me know #covid #benefits #eligibility

Oh my gosh that is horrible!! I am so sorry. Harassment is unacceptable. Perhaps you could try Legal Sheild. I know they offer pretty affordable rates although I haven't personally used them a friend of mine did. I am wishing you the best. As someone who has been sexually harassed myself I just want to tell you that you are VERY brave to stand up to them! Sending you a hug. I would also continue your job search for now and find something that works well for you! Check out these remote jobs.

I feel for you Arianna. My employer was not following CDC guidelines for COVID. There have been two OSHA complaints filed against them. Their answers to the complaints were not lies, but extremely misleading. My breaking point was when an employee (also the Union steward) that was positive for COVID was allowed to come to work outside of normal business hours. When I approached my boss on this, she became upset and screamed f-you at me in front of the entire office, twice. Her boss did nothing, the other managers did nothing and the union didn't care. After she screamed at me, I quit. I've also been denied unemployment because my employer stated that I walked out after having an argument with my manager. Along with my denial letter was an info sheet on how to get free legal advice. This was for Wisconsin only, it is called Legal Action of Wisconsin. Maybe they have something similar where you live? Good luck to you! I hope things get better.

I hate this. #covid #unemployment #eligibility #benefits #nobenefits #healthcare

This morning i received a call from and spoke with someone from the Utah Department OF Workforce Sevices(Unemployment). I clearly stated to him that i had been quarentineed since December 17 for the second time. I tested positive again for covid. I stated multiple times that although i had been and was still experiencing symptoms from the virus, i had been able, available, and actively looking for full time empoyment. I stated i had Been consistently making and documenting the four job contacts a week requirement. I said i had been seeking full time employment that offered remote positions. This is what he said in the letter i got from him...

"You have not been able to work full time because of illness, injury or disability. Benefits are denied under Section 35A-4-403(1)(c) of the Utah Employment Security Act beginning 12/27/2020 and ending when you meet the requirements for eligibility. The Act provides that a person must be able and available for full-time work and be making an active, good faith effort to seek work to be eligible. You will be notified separately of any other issues on your claim." #benefits #covid #eligibility #coronavirus # #utah

I've been waiting for my unemployment since April 26 2020. Only to be ran around and let down. I have lost everything since. I been a cna for 10 years never had to file. Would like to apart of this covid fight but limited to funds. And resources. I just want what I've worked for. Nothing more. My unemployment would sure help me with getting back on my feet. #benefits #covid #eligibility #help # Oklahoma #healthcare
