Did you work or earn any money? (If YES, you must answer 4a and 4b)
The Department regularly matches hiring information with employer records. Failure to report earnings may result in prosecution and payment of restitution.
4a. What were your gross earnings before deductions?
Reporting work and wages - If you performed any work or earned any money you must report it on your weekly claim. You must report the total amount earned before deductions. Wages must be reported the week in which the work is performed even if you not have been paid yet.
When reporting earnings, you must include tips, meals, lodging, merchandise, or any other kind of payment for services. Payment for showing up to work or processing time is reportable even though you did not work. Partial or temporary employment, commission sales, odd jobs or self-employment also need to be reported. Selling personal items is not considered wages or payment for services.
