4 Questions Answered

Q. Re: NYS Unemployment Insurance PUA (federal funded "Pandemic Unemployment Insurance" CARES Act) eligibility..
A: Given that NYS oversees the claims even in this federal instance, to affirm that you are ready and willing to work within the country each time you would be claiming is fraud. If you can suspend the claim and start it back up once you're able to be in the country, that might work, but ultimately it's your call on whether you willing want to perjure yourself to get the money.
Q. Am I eligible for unemployment insurance?
A: It is my understanding that the claim will be denied until the dismissal pay period ends, and you will be then forced into creating a new claim. You will be considered unemployed when you no longer receive that paycheck. This would be a similar instance if you were receiving severance pay.
Q. I paid a company to fix my mower and two years later they still have it. Is there anyway to receive my money back?
A: Depending on where the company is located in relationship to where you live, you may be able to bring a small claims action against the company, seeking the amount you prepaid as well as the mower. Any written documentation including claim check or price quote would be very important in proving your damages.
