You may read or download the handbook from our website. Volunteering will not affect your unemployment benefits as long as you meet the regular work-search and availability requirements. If you did not work more than 17 hours in any week in your base period, you may need to look for only part-time work. Report the holiday pay when you claim the week in which the holiday occurred.
Contact each state where you worked to find out your claim options for those states. Where can I get a Handbook for Unemployed Workers (e.g., unemployment benefits manual)? To save money, we no longer mail the handbook to everyone who applies for benefits. The skill sets you use and learn in volunteer work could turn into a job offer or a career change in the future. What do I do if I didn’t report my earnings or if I incorrectly reported them? Call the claims center for assistance as soon as possible. Can I collect unemployment benefits if I work part-time? You must still meet the job-search requirements while working part-time.
Most claims receive between 13 to 26 weeks of benefits. If your Work Source office requests information about you returning to work, please respond to them. Can I still claim weekly benefits if I am moving out of Washington state? You can do this: Continue to file your weekly claims as you do now. If you collect unemployment benefits from Washington, you must register for work in the new state. Can I volunteer while I am job searching and collecting unemployment benefits? Yes, volunteering will not affect your unemployment benefits as long as you meet the regular work-search and availability requirements.
Whenever I write about backdating, many people write in to tell me that backdating's not illegal; you just have to account for it correctly.
Since so many people think this is an important point, I thought I'd do a post addressing just that contention. What I assume people mean is that granting in-the-money options is not illegal, so long as you account for it properly. But the whole point of backdating is to pretend that you're not granting in-the-money options when in fact you are.
That allows Gibney to play rare — and fascinating — footage of Jobs parrying with Securities and Exchange Commission lawyers during a 2008 deposition. Here’s an excerpt of that conversation: Your film doesn’t have any on-camera interviews with current Apple employees, or anyone who didn’t end up distanced from Jobs in some significant way. In that SEC deposition, where he’s talking about how, when he wasn’t given a bigger stock option package by the board, he felt hurt — that just struck me like, you’re a very very powerful guy, and the board didn’t do what you wanted to do by themselves, and you’re hurt? That seemed like a person who couldn’t get outside himself. Is that because you thought they were telling, or because you could talk to people who would talk about it, or both? This film really looks very carefully at his values.
Most biographies of Jobs mention the backdating story, and incidents like his fight with Gizmodo, after the site got its hands on his i Phone prototype. That’s something Steve would bring up over and over again: Values.
