Laid off April 2012 from part time job (approx 24-32 hrs per week). I had been working an approx. 24-32 hour work week for the last five years. Federal Ext. Tier 1 began Oct 2012. I filled out form stating hours I could work (32 hrs based on my child's school hrs). I was notified of telephone interview. Interviewer asked me if I worked more than 30 hrs 55% of the time at my last job. She asked if I had childcare. I did, but not "officially" (no # of provider to give her during call). DENIED based on 1253(c). HOWEVER, based on Code Sec 1253.8, I believe I have a part-time claim NOT a full time claim which means I am only required to look for similar work (I look for PT & FT). Interviewer said I made too much $ to be PT claim. I will bring timesheets/paystubs to hearing. Any advice?
