I am sorry that you are getting such conflicting information, that really stinks.

I think what the lady today was telling you is probably right, no one that I know that works at a school gets unemployment for school breaks...they aren't really "unemployed" during winter break, spring break,'s just the schedule when you work for a school.

Oh I am so sorry to hear that. :(((. It sounds misleading. Just hang in there. I would fight nicely though. But fight it. I have never dealt with unemployment so I will do a little prayer that it all works out.

I can understand their confusion--if you're a school cafeteria worker, your normal schedule would include long periods of time off during school breaks, so that's not technically being unemployed or laid off.

So what it says in the unemployment handbook.
