"Denying workers their rights during a public health crisis is immoral, irresponsible, and we cannot and will not stand for it.”
It appears that in Arizona, you can. You just have to note your income on your weekly claim....I wonder if those getting excited about UI benefit checks understand you also can't go 'online' when you are getting checks. One cancels the other ie if you are taking pings, you also can't claim checks. That's how it works.
there is an option that “couldn’t find state id” #Man, nobody on here is saying anything that is useful in filing for unemployment for people who drive for Uber or Lyft in California because we need the SEIN to get pass the 3rd page on the unemployment website and THEY KNEW THIS! This number is different than the FEIN that the companies get assigned to them from the federal government AND THEY KNEW WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET THAT NUMBER! We need to find someone who works for Uber and Lyft as regular employees and they can give it to us cause its on line 15 of their W-2!
California as well.It appears that in Arizona, you can. You just have to note your income on your weekly claim.
That doesn't quite make sense (the norm of anything coming out of support): as far as I know, only you the individual can submit a request with the EDD. The only role of an employer during an unemployment claim is to receive an unemployment claim letter from EDD, and to respond to it if they want to dispute it. Or at least, that's how it was before this mess.Don't know if it'll pan out, but I'm on hold with uber customer support right now, and the guy said he's trying to find the info. Either uber is going out of their way to make the info difficult to find, or they were super unready. I'll let you guys know if I get anything.
Edit: after talking to the customer service rep, apparently uber submitted for unemployment for me because I called? I have no idea how that works, but it seems like by calling customer service they submit a request for you. Seems shady, but not sure what the other options are.
Also, shoutout to california who removed the "talk to representative" option from their unemployment phone number
That's what has me confused, but I also don't know whether this is some new thing they put into place because of uber drivers not normally qualifying for unemployment.That doesn't quite make sense (the norm of anything coming our of support): as far as I know, only you the individual can submit a request with the EDD.

Uber does have regular employees.I called support again, and badgered a customer support person into coughing up the truth. Uber literally doesn't have an esid number, because they don't have any official employees. (Despite the bill that passed in cali that made everyone theoretically employees)
I appreciate the attempt, but that doesn't really help. The ein number is different from the number that we're talking about here, and I would have to be able to submit a claim first in order to be officially denied, and thus fill out the "misclassified worker" formUber does have regular employees.
Don't try and get UI through Uber.
Advocates say Uber isn't being honest about drivers' UI options in New York State, a COVID-19 epicenter, where a court also just ruled that Postmates workers get UI, too.www.forbes.comPost automatically merged:
Read through this thread,
Pay especially close attention to @LADryver s posts.
Wrong. Just wait. They will "welcome" you with a link when ready. Uber is not your employer. "Don't mind that man he ain't your papa".Guys, I figured it out. There's a button hidden in the corner of the page that says "last employer not listed." So you can enter uber's info there.
Dealing with state government gives more headaches than you could anticipate. California, at least, has a provision where you can only have one benefit year active. There is another provision that provides appeals. Appeals can fix problems of procedure. Yet another provision lets you cancel a claim and start over. Here are the differences:I get it. Still gotta at least try
Please let me know if you find Uber & Lyft California EIN (8 digits and different than FEIN)How do we find Uber's ESIN number to apply for unemployment insurance? That is the roadblock on the EDD website when attempting to apply. I can only find the EIN number, which is the federal number - I need the California state ESIN (8 digits) to find Uber as the employer and continue with the application.
Regardless of whether or not we will get any UI benefits, it seems there is a chance with this stimulus package including increased UI benefits, so it would be smart to apply given that benefits start the week you apply for them. Even if rejected benefits, it's possible there might be changes to in the coming weeks and maybe they will be allowed for rideshare drivers, and again, we would be paid the benefits starting the Sunday of the week we apply.
What are their California EIN's for Uber and Lyft?Can you do it online?
You can't do it there cause it ask for their Sate EIN and if you don't know it it doesn't let you go to the next pageGuys, I figured it out. There's a button hidden in the corner of the page that says "last employer not listed." So you can enter uber's info there.
