    In March I posted a topic explaining how uber deactivated my account unfairly and that I filed a claim for unemployment benefits and was awarded. As of May 8th I passed my phone interview and was given the greenlight to start receiving benefits of $395 per week. If any former or part-time uber/lyft drivers need advise on how to turn your 1040s into wages to start recieving benefits please let me know. Attached award letter for further proof.

    Now how much are you allowed to make on Lyft per week without losing your benefits?

    I bet Ubers Legal Dept is having collective kittens.

    Post back in 18 months when you receive the notice of repayment due. Happens all the time with regular employers, let alone non-employers like Uber.

    Maybe in Chicago that's true -- hell, dead people vote there so I dunno what kind of 'justice' standard you folks are on ... but, that can't happen in California.

    The only thing I'd have to pay back is unreported wages. I actually did have
    Lol. Serves them right for deactivating ppls accounts for stupid reasons and not wanting to reason.

  8. How's that "must look for full time work each week" part working out? Are you looking for full time work and do you have to log the prospective employment stops you make?

    If I remember correctly, the lady that posted her award letter last year also had Uber Techn as the employer name.

    What happened to Raisier?

    This will thin the herd even further in California along with the increase in gas prices. Drivers will be looking for ways to be terminated.

    Not that I know of, but this waa three years ago, if they had made a mistake at the time they wouldn't be paying out now.
