in Pissed!

Since claiming my benefits, it’s been 8 weeks and not receiving any money due to disqualification. I had an assignment from a staffing agency and worked and made only $40 for three and half hours. I had to quit due to poor equipment and environment. Staffing agency reported EDD that I worked for one full week of 40 hours and did not report EDD of all waged I made. A huge lie! I went through phone interview and agent was even unaware I only worked for three and half hours. I accidentally report $40 on my claim and I’m disqualified. I was able to get a full time job and unable to appear to appeal. Now I’m unemployed and no income. I have bills to pay every months. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Call the office of appeals immediately and ask them to reschedule the hearing. If you’re working, ask that they schedule you for a hearing by telephone.

      Thanks for your response. I consulted with a lawyer and he told me I
      should’ve appealed within 20 days but it’s past 20 days and I may be
      still appeal but judge will ask me why I didn’t appeal with in 20 days. I
      was working full time that time and didn’t have time. Lawyer told me
      judge will not take that as an excuse. But anyway, EDD made a decision
      that I own them $2000. I only forgot to report of making $40! I’ve been
      filing claims for more than two months now and with my income tax refund
      confiscated back in April but seems like EDD tries to confiscate my
      benefit forever. Now I have no income for long time and going through
      very tough times with bills and all. Any suggestions? Appreciated.
