Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
week of unemployment  work without earnings 


Over a period that extended for several weeks, the claimant neglected to report his self-employment when he knew he had to do so. His only explanation was that he needed his benefits as his business was providing him with no income at the time. This does not constitute an acceptable explanation for his failure to report his self-employment. The Commission took into consideration all the relevant facts and circumstances in imposing the penalty at 50% of the amount of the overpayment resulting from the claimant's failure to report his self-employment.
