I have a team member at work who’s actively trying to get fired (we think) in order to be able to collect.

I’m a little unclear if she’d be able to collect after being fired for cause but it’s a pretty greasy move. We hired her about a month ago and I think this was her plan from the beginning. 
 

Im glad this money is available to those that truly need it and heart goes out to anyone facing that kind of financial uncertainty due to no fault of their own.

Nope, fired for cause she'd get squadoosh. But that's sometimes open for interpretation and in my experience it's tilted towards the employee. Make sure whatever rule she violates is listed in your handbook, and she signed a page saying she received the handbook and agrees to abide by the rules within.

Do folks that were on UE 9PUA) that ended 12/26 need to "re-apply" or is it automatic?  I have a family member that did the online weekly benefits claim but it came back as "no benefit" for week ending 1/2/21.

I don't know the answer, but Mass hasn't implemented the new CARES Act provisions yet.

Let her get herself fired, in Hawaii you only get out what you put in. If she worked for a month, lay her ass off!

You can quit a job in MA and claim “hostile work environment” and get unemployment.

My sis in law quit her job two weeks before “lockdown” happened this spring. She filed for and started collecting unemployment and was actually bringing in more than she ever has in her life. Come July, she gets a bunch of letters and finally a phone call saying she didn’t qualify and had to pay back the 12,000 she’d received.

She filed an appeal but hasn’t heard anything since but it’s probably only a matter of time.

For people that were collecting the pua that ended 12/26 will continue to collect under the new stimulas! It just has not been funded yet you must continue to do your weekly file!

funds should be available soon.

Also worth noting, there are good companies hiring now. That should not be forgotten.
