I just received a notice that I have a telephone interview that I filed my continued claim form late.
I filled these forms late because I had to leave town to (actually went out of state) to care for my sister, who is undergoing chemotherapy, and I had to take care of her 3 kids. I did email the EDD about this matter, but received no response.
I filled the forms upon my return, and now I understand that I’m at risk of the EDD disqualifying me from getting employment benefits for these weeks.
Can they do that? Isn’t my reason VERY valid?
