I have a permanent job and a part time substitute teacher's job in New Jersey. I was laid off from my permanent job. I started collecting unemployment insurance while I was still doing substituting teaching. Is it right for the unemployment office to refuse me unemployment during summer holiday while insurance benefit hasn't finished yet?
Yes you can, file with your unemployment office.
So why can school bus drivers collect UI? I don't have a problem with being ineligible for UI - I knew when I started subbing that I couldn't work when school was out (that's actually why I took the job), but I don't like hearing that others who provide "school-year-only" services can claim their insurance benefits when I can't, when we're both out of work for the same reason.
The state of Pennsylvania denies substitute teachers the right to collect unemployment insurance, there reason being that Holidays and Summer recess are normal parts of teacher scheduling, furthermore, if the district that you work for promises to take you back for the next year, your still considered employed.
Yes, you can, file for it.
