in ¿Confused?

Recently I filed for IU because i was fired. I had my phone interview and started recieve benefits after certifying. In the process of looking for work which the EDD requires. I went to an old temp agency because I was still currently in there system even though i stopped working for them because i started the job i was fired from. So they sent me on assignment. When i got there i asked the supervisor how long did he think he would need our help. He replied a few days. Me knowing this was not a permanent solution to my problem. I called off because i had interviews for permenant positions elsewhere instead of finishing the rest of the 2 or 3 day assignment that again was going to leave me unemployed. So the edd sent me a letter stating I quit the temp agency and i need another interview to determine eligibility. Im confused because they reason i filed unemployment had nothing to do with this company in the first place. I was fired and that was the reason i was recieving benefits. Ive been calling the temp agency for over 2 months and they havent sent me on a assignment but also stating i quit so they wont pay out my benefits. Im basically stuck not working and not receiving benefits. Was i suppose to be surviving off the temp agency even though they have rarely ever gave me 40hrs a week? Why are they stopping my benefits over a assignment that was only suppose to last a few days anyway. Was i better off just not going to back to the agency and looking for work as the edd requires? Was i suppose to accept the temp work and not try to go to my interviews for permanent employment? It just sucks how they do you smh

I turned in my SDI claim in the drop off box 11/27/17 I went in to the offcie 12/8/17 to check if it has been recieved the lady said she didn’t see my claim in the system. I don’t know if I should wait another week or redo the claim over. Im due in a week and have no funds!!!!

I have been waiting for more than a week for the affidavit of wages form from the EDD. I need to mail in my check stubs to prove that I earned wages in the second quarter this year. (My employer didn’t report the wages and stole my tax deposits.) Does anyone know if there is a direct number to the audit department? The EDD reps at the main number seem to have no way to expedite this action. Thanks!

My current claim will be expiring 12/31/17. I will be applying for the transitional claim a few days prior to that in hopes that their will be relatively little break in payments. I have re-established an “attachment to the labor force” (or however that’s worded) and earned over $1300 in one quarter during my current claim year. My highest quarter earnings on the upcoming claim will be from the same employer I am drawing benefits from now, specifically the Oct-Dec quarter of 2016. Will EDD still use that employer in calculating quarterly earnings? Or just from the employer I earned money with in 2017?

I checked off the homeless box on my unemployment form. I am now living with a friend, but they have contacted me for a phone interview that I sense is due to my homeless status with edd. If they would like me to demonstrate I can still look for unemployment while homeless how do I do that?
Should I just change my residential address to my companion even though I have no proof of residence(Bills / lease ect)?

After my last payment on Nov 7th, I hadn’t been paid and getting in touch with edd has been hell, finally I got through and was told there was an error and the woman managed to fix it and I should be getting paid 2 weeks from today Dec 4; will I be eligible for back pay?
The woman on the phone seemed to rush me off so I didn’t even think to ask this.

I got my UI award letter today and discovered that my employer didn’t report my second quarter earnings. They withheld state and federal taxes from my paychecks but didn’t deposit the funds with the tax agencies. I was laid off because they closed the business. This effects my weekly award payment–instead of $450 for 6 months, I will only get $175 for six weeks.

I will call EDD on Monday morning to report this fraud. I was told by someone I know who works for EDD that an adjustor will review my payroll check payment records and that I could end up getting the correct award amount, but that it is a long process. (I will also have to deal with the IRS and state next year when I don’t receive a W-2 or receive an incorrect W-2.)

I was shocked that the owners of the company would use the employees’ tax deposits to pay other bills (or pay themselves). I think they should go to prison for fraud. There are 10 other employees who are also affected by this.

Has anyone here dealt with this situation?
