In California employees who are temporarily out of work through no fault of their own may qualify to collect unemployment benefits.
However, the eligibility rules, prior earnings requirements, benefit amounts, and other details vary from state to state. Here are the basic rules for collecting unemployment compensation in California.
You must meet three eligibility requirements to collect unemployment benefits in California:
– Your past earnings must meet certain minimum thresholds.
– You must be unemployed through no fault of your own, as defined by California law.
– You must be able, available, and actively seeking work.
