My wife is a part-time cashier and was furloughed with the rest of her store when stay-at-home orders went into effect in Illinois in March. She was getting unemployment for the duration, including the $600 extra benefit (IL seemed to have the process pretty streamlined, unlike some other states). During the lockdown, we took placement of some foster kids and when my wife was called back to work last a few weeks ago we decided she would stay home with the kids instead of going back to work. Because she didn't have the required hours she didn't qualify for FMLA, but she was allowed to take a personal leave through the 结束 of the month and then her employment will 结束 if she does not go back to work.

当她接到通知可以回去上班时,我不知道该怎么做。"end"她的失业要求,所以我提交了她的证明,并选择了表明她不是的选项"available for work" and had "拒绝工作" thinking that would disqualify her and that would be the 结束 of it. Well a couple weeks after that we got a call from someone at the unemployment office to inquire about what offer of work she had declined. When we (my wife on her own at first, then all three of us on speaker when things got confusing) told him that her store had opened back up and she had decided to take a personal leave he said that that did not count as "拒绝工作"而且即使她现在正在休假,她仍然有资格失业。实际上,他对此非常坚持。他说过"lots of people" were choosing not to return to work when their workplaces opened back up and that because the COVID-19 situation was still going on, they were still allowed to get unemployment. We went back and forth on this for a good 5-10 minutes with him and 结束ed up relenting. Later that day we received a payment for the now four weeks of unemployment she had not yet received.

这让我感到困惑,有些担心。我以为,如果您休了个人请假或自愿辞职并且不打算寻找任何替代工作,那么您将无法失业。我知道救济法案暂时更改了一些规则,但是我仍然给人的印象是,如果您因工作原因(甚至害怕暴露于COVID-19)而拒绝返回工作岗位,您将不再受雇。有资格失业。这会回来咬我们吗?感觉就像是欺诈。我们是否应该预留这笔钱以准备在某个时候偿还?如果我们不自己采取行动退还这笔钱,我们会以某种方式被罚款或处罚吗?还是对吗,我们仍然可以根据自己的情况收取这笔钱吗?

编辑:我忘了他还说过,如果她的雇主认为她不符合失业资格,他们将可以对她的要求提出异议。我认为到那时我们肯定要还钱。您知道该过程通常需要多长时间吗?
