Yes, this is a question for the state unemployment department. But all their lines are busy, and they aren’t taking e-mail inquiries. (Really!)
I have to take a furlough week before March, and I’m planning to take the week of Dec. 28 off, since my kids will be home from school anyway. It’s fine with my boss to take New Year’s Day as a furlough day and take a paid holiday day later, but he said he didn’t know if the state unemployment office would let me take New Year’s as a furlough day since it’s a federal holiday. This is in Wisconsin, BTW. Any ideas?
