Massachusetts temp agency

Post by caleb23 on Fri Sep 07, 2012 11:47 am

I ran out of benifits about 6 months ago. I started a new job thru a temp agency and worked there for almost 5 months. the job ended and I know that there are alot of issues getting benifits after working thru temps. I got a perm job last week and its not working out so well, its a real good company and I will be leaving on good terms. What would be my chances of collecting? and does anyone know if my income from the temp will be applied to my eligible income. I know its only 2 quarters worth of employment income. im just so confused.

If yiu have 6 months working you will qualify for benefits. However leaving a job voluntarily is the real issue. You'd have to have damn good reason to leave.

In Ohio we need at least 20 weeks of (W-2) work to qualify...that 20 weeks need to have had an overall pay amount of 20 X $222.00 or $4,440.00.

Ohio is one of the strictest for requirements.....dont know exactly how Mass works but such info is on the website i would imagine..(they go on Gross amount before taxes)

http://www.massresources.org/unemployment-eligibility.html

seems they have a $3500.00 minimum in Mass

You lost your job through no fault of your own. This could happen if:
you were laid off because of lack of work
your hours were cut back because of lack of work
you were fired without good cause
you quit your job with good cause, for example, unhealthy or dangerous working conditions
you had to leave your job because of domestic violence
you were forced to quit your job because of a very important personal reason
You are physically and mentally able to work.
You are looking for a job and willing to accept work right away.
You have not been able to find another job in your field of work (or something similar).
You earned at least $3500 during a recent one-year period called your "base period."
Note: Your "primary base period" includes the last four completed calendar quarters just before you filed your unemployment insurance claim. There are four calendar quarters in a year: January through March, April through June, July through September, and October through December. In some cases, DUA will allow you to use another base period to qualify.

You worked in Massachusetts (or your employer's base of operations was within Massachusetts).
Note: If you worked in another state, you should apply for unemployment insurance in that state.

You did not file a different claim for UI benefits in Massachusetts within the past year.
Note: You may file a new claim for UI benefits only once during a benefit year.

Hmmm, well that copy and paste job did not come out so well!! Lol sorry guys, just click on that link and you can read about who qualifies.

Somewhere in there it says you have to earn at least 3500 during your base period.
