California EDD came through! I got the old November check on Monday, and then on Tuesday, I got 4 forms that cover the remainder of the year. Now I just have to fill them out and return them. Separately, they will not be much, since I was working at the time, but all together they should be just over $400.
I am going to the wine shop today to get my daily hours---short story here: The wine shop had their pay week run from Wednesday to Tuesday, and the State of California (and probably 98% of the rest of the world) have theirs Sunday to Saturday. So while I did keep my own hours, it was obviously difficult to keep track in the 100ths of an hour. On a weekly basis, it was close enough for me, but I need to be exact for the UI forms, since they could check with the wine shop to verify my hours.
I won't even go to the fact that with the wine shops off set week, that looks like one (California) week I work 25 hours, then the next I work 45 hours. My average hours with the wine shop were about 33 hours.
And, I don't know what to do about the start of the new year--I guess I need to call them, but part of me wants to wait until I get paid for old year, before I start on this new year.
I have reached the top of the tall mountain, only to see another set of mountains on the other side. A little disheartening to say the least.
