Will my benefits be reduced if I am working and receiving training benefits?

(1) You are not unemployed during a week if:
(a) You work the number of hours consistent with full-time work for your occupation; or
(b) Your gross earnings equal or exceed one and one-third times your weekly benefit amount plus five dollars.
(2) There are two earnings deductions for claims filed effective July 1, 2012, and later:
(a) If you are not receiving training benefits and are unemployed for a week, the department will subtract five dollars from your gross earnings, multiply by seventy-five percent and round up to the nearest whole dollar. The resulting amount will be deducted from your weekly benefit amount.
Example: You have an unemployment claim effective July 1, 2012, and are receiving regular benefits. Your weekly benefit amount is four hundred dollars. During a week, you work twenty hours as a retail salesperson making ten dollars per hour. Your earnings deduction will be one hundred forty-seven dollars. Your unemployment benefit for the week will be two hundred fifty-three dollars.
(b) If you are receiving training benefits and are unemployed for a week, the department will subtract five dollars from your gross earnings, multiply by fifty percent and round up to the nearest whole dollar. The resulting amount will be deducted from your weekly benefit amount.
Example: You have an unemployment claim effective July 1, 2012, and are receiving training benefits. Your weekly benefit amount is four hundred dollars. During a week, you work twenty hours as a retail salesperson making ten dollars per hour. Your earnings deduction will be ninety-eight dollars. Your unemployment benefit for the week will be three hundred two dollars.
