    If I was hired by NY State as a seasonal forestry technician and worked 32 hours per week for 8 months (7/26/18-3/31/19) of the year ..could I file for unemployment if I still could not find a job after the 8 months was over? Would I be eligible?

      Chris,

      Is your employment on contract? If yes, please call the Unemployment Office in your state to determine eligibility since employers’ generally do not pay Unemployment Taxes into the system.

      Satonius,

      If you’re out of work due to no fault of your own and have the required earnings in the “Base Period”, you can be eligible. Please call the Unemployment Office for more information.
