If you work part-time for another employer
If you have a second job, your part-time, non WorkSharing employer will need to complete a form reporting your part-time earnings. Your WorkSharing employer will have these forms. Once this form is completed, you must give it to your WorkSharing employer so that your earnings from this second job can be used to make any needed adjustment to your WorkSharing benefits.
Any wages you earn from the second job that are in excess of $202 a week will deducted dollar-for-dollar from your WorkSharing benefits.
Here's an example:
Worker A has a part-time job paying $140 a week. Worker A would have no reduction in her $50 a week in WorkSharing benefits.
Worker A receives 80 percent of her regular wages, her part-time earnings of $140 a week, plus $50 a week in WorkSharing benefits.
Worker B also has a part-time job. His part-time job pays $250 a week. Worker B would have a reduction in his WorkSharing benefits.
|Unemployment insurance (UI) benefit rate:||$250 a week|
|Dependency allowance for two children:||+ $ 50 a week|
|Total UI benefits:||= $300 a week|
|WorkSharing benefits (20 percent of UI benefit rate):||$ 60 a week|
|Amount of part-time earnings in excess of $202:||- $ 48 a week|
Worker B receives 80 percent of his regular wages, his part-time earnings of $250 a week, plus $12 a week in WorkSharing benefits
Unemployment insurance benefits are taxable
Your WorkSharing benefits will not be taxed when you receive them, but you will need to report your WorkSharing benefits when you file your income taxes.You will receive a Form 1099G in the mail during January that will tell you the total amount you received in benefits during the prior year. Include this amount in your tax return and attach the form when you file your return.
Prior unemployment insurance overpayments
If you received unemployment insurance benefits to which you were not entitled and you did not voluntarily repay these benefits to DUA, your WorkSharing benefit will be taken to recover any overpaid amount until that balance has been paid.
