Question :
How does vacation or holiday pay affect my Unemployment Insurance?
Answer :
Vacation pay is 100 percent deductible for one or more weeks. Please report all of your vacation pay in the first week. The number of weeks affected is determined by information we receive from the employer. Holiday pay is deductible as wages in the week in which the holiday falls. The formula for gross earnings is: multiply the number of hours worked times hourly rate of pay. Example: Worked 20 hours x $10.00 per hour wages = $200.00 gross earnings.
