I own a lawn and landscape company. I am the only employee. I work from March to December . I was denied benefits last Dec of 2010, filed an appeal and won my case by law judge James Martin. I filed and was denied again December of 2011 for the exact reason as the previous year: Whether the claiment was able, available, and making an effort to secure full-time work. I have a return to work date as I did the previous year which serves as a job search waiver. I pay my qtrly. contributions and I devote no hours to my bussiness during the down time and I do not advertise. Before I filed this Dec. 2011 I spoke with 5 persons in Workforce Dev. including a deputy that could not answer one question.... am I elligible. I have a hearing before Administrative Law Judge Michael White. So here is my Question. If I am found inelligible can I stop paying my qrtly. contributions? IF my employee [MYSELF] can never be elligible to file a claim then why should my employer [myself] have to pay qurtly. contributions? This seems unfair to me as an employer and an employee.
