Have you tried filing for unemployment to see if you qualify while on an unpaid leave?Has any taken an unpaid LOA and was able to receive unemployment? I got an email from Target benefits that said this...
"If you decide to continue your leave as an unpaid leave, you can choose to use any accrued time you may have, such as vacation, personal holiday or sick time. You may also be eligible for state unemployment benefits if you are on leave due to coronavirus related reasons. You can access usa.gov/unemployment for more information and to be directed to your state’s unemployment web site. Note, while on an unpaid leave of absence, you will be directly billed monthly for benefits, if enrolled."
I've never used unemployment benefits ever so I have no idea.
May god have mercy on your soul and your journey take less than a month.I filed earlier this week. I'm still waiting to see if I qualify. I was able to get all my sick time by contacting the benefits hotline. It took about a week though to get someone respond to my email. I'll let you know if I hear something from unemployment.
Any update? My Target is PEAKING on positive cases with 8 new positive cases in the past 5 days alone. My paid leave ends tomorrow and thinking of taking an unpaid leave.I filed earlier this week. I'm still waiting to see if I qualify. I was able to get all my sick time by contacting the benefits hotline. It took about a week though to get someone respond to my email. I'll let you know if I hear something from unemployment.
What did you put as your reasons for needing unemployment when filing? I put leave of absence and then it wanted me to put a more detailed reason so I put health and now I am confused with some of the questions. I'm pregnant and have asthma and have some employees at my store being tested so I have chosen to continue unpaid leave after the paid one.I think the ball is rolling. I got something in the mail stating how much I'll get each week. I went online last week and did my first weekly check in. I haven't received money in my account yet but I really only filed 2 weeks ago. I'll let you know what happens. Be safe and do what's best for you! Good luck!
