OK shitty situation going on here…I live in Michigan. My wife had 2 jobs. In her full time job she made good money and was there for 2 years. She then got a part time job at a gym making a small amount just for some extra income and a free membership. She was only at this job for approximately 6 weeks, worked less than 10 hours a week - so less than $100 a week…
She then learned she was being laid off from her full time job. Obviously the part time job was pretty much worthless with the money she made and they couldn’t give her the hours to make it a full time job…so she quit this job before ever filing for unemployment.
She then qualified for the maximum funds for unemployment. She has been unemployed for over a year now, everything was going good. However, yesterday we get a letter in the mail saying there has been a mistake and since she quit her job, she does not qualify. Keep in mind, the job she quit was a gym working part time, not her primary full time job who she was with for 2 years. They are saying we have to repay everything that was ever given to her and she’s been unemployed for over a year like i said above. Do the math, we’re talking over $15,000 here.
Of course we’re protesting/appealing this case because there seems to be some mixup. They seem to think she’s trying to get unemployment from the gym, not her full time job. The gym suddenly received papers last week and rejected the claim saying she quit. Have any of you ever dealt with anything like this?
