    Answered . Your husband needs to document his contact with Unemployment. Telephone calls are a waste of time. You will need to Fax a well drafted letter to the Labor Board in Albany, NY. The fax number is on thier website and direct your letter to the head of the agency rather than to "Whom it May Concern." If your husband has is a permanent resident, meaning that he has a Green Card, then there should be no question about his eligibility for benefits barring an employer's protest.
