If you ever have to make a claim with New York State Department of Labor, for Unemployment Insurance, BEWARE. DO NOT take any part time job, or temporary job while claiming your benefits, even though you notify them you have worked. Besides taking a good part of the day to speak to a real person, paperwork you file, gets lost, phone conversations with representatives are forgotten as soon as they hang-up the phone, and there is no inter-office communication to support the claimant. You are better off receiving your full claim, and then looking for work. The Department of Labor only cares about how much they can screw you out of your claim. It doesn't matter how hard you have worked for a previous employer, or the reason you were terminated. The arrogant and nasty, employees at the Department of Labor, DO NOT CARE about you, or your claim. Remember... your unemployment insurance was paid by you. The funds are taken out of every pay check. The employer pays very little. Good luck.

    The NYS Department of Labor is a money making machine, designed to screw over employees who have contributed to their unemployment insurance. The department's goal is to make money for New York State, NOT to help the unemployed. The department's employees are arrogant, nasty, and incompetent. A collection of heartless misfits that should meet the same fate as the people they torture on a daily basis.

    I am ashamed of New York State. Any experience with a NYS office is a nightmare. Not to mention the cost of living and ridiculous property taxes. Now I know why so many people are moving out of state.

    Boo hoo. You are required to look for gainful employment instead of just sitting on your rear collecting welfare.

    Actually, your unemployment was NOT paid for by you, it is paid by your employer. If you're getting money taken out of your paycheck for that, then you need to look into it.
