I need some help that involves collecting unemployment during your off time. I am paid a day rate like everyone else but my schedule with my company can be a little wild sometimes I am off 2 weeks sometimes I am off 5 weeks and receive no vacation pay or ATO . I started collecting unemployment about a year ago during my off time to help offset the random schedule issues. The problem is my employer has appealed to the state unemployment office saying I am a full time employee. The state (Florida) has already ruled in my favor once saying that because the company has no other options for me to earn income and that I don’t earn vacation pay I am entitled. Well now they have appealed again and are asking the state to make me pay back all the money I collected. What is you experience with this any words of wisdom or has anyone fought this fight before???
