Comments on: Laid off? Five Things to Do Right Away Money: Earn it, Invest it, Spend it Fri, 19 May 2017 17:24:17 +0000 hourly 1 By: greg Fri, 28 Oct 2011 12:43:44 +0000 I have been in a sucky job for almost seven years,but have had an application in for a construction co. for two of those years. Finally, I get the chance to work for them so I take the oppertunity. I was making $14.50 an hour when I quit my old sucky job.I started construction at $39.58 an hour for two weeks(bacon davis wages), then full time work at $14.50 an hour. I got temporarly laid off for two weeks. the first week is a waiting week ,the second is a payment week. I worked for my boss 1/2 a day(4hrs) on monday and a full day (8 hrs)on wendsday during my waiting week. then I worked 8 hrs on my second week.
my benifits are 381/ are allowed to earn up to 1/3 of your benifits without affecting your weekly payment, if you go over that it will be subtracted from your weekly benefit payment.
so what I,m getting at is that I did not turn work down, I did look for work (although I don’t know why I would have to because I still have my job) and I did work.
yet my benifits are all tied up and I haven,t seen any money yet.
I am currently back at work full time. but still there is $381 due to me and I don’t want them to get away with sticking it to the little guy, for my benefit or anyone else either.
Open to suggestions.
