Currently working two jobs, will soon get laid off my main one and continue to work my side job. In my main job I make about $900/week, and in my side one I make about 100/week. I understand that .50 off every dollar I make at my side job will be subtracted from my benefit, but my question is how will my initial benefit be calculated? Will they use 55% of my main job ($495) as the base amount, or is it something different that combines the two weekly amounts? I would really love to not be too surprised by the amount they throw at me, thanks in advance for the help!!
Edit: basically, I’m wondering if there’s any way that going into EI already working a part time job can hurt my benefits (other than the $.50/dollar earned reduction)
