Have any of you handsome freelancers (ICs on 1099s, non-W2s) applied for unemployment in CA yet? If so, how’d it go? Anything to look out for?

I’m noticing a large number of out-of-work freelance colleagues are strangely hesitant to file for unemployment. Just do it. There is no shame in doing it. You are entitled to it.

I’m director level planner who needs to bid out a project. It’s for a non-profit. It’ll be about 30 hours. I don’t want to price myself out but I’ve been burnt by under charging.What would you charge?

Which do you think is going to be easier to land now, a full-time job or freelance work?

Trying to apply for unemployment in NYC. How do I apply if my most recent project was under a w9? Don’t want to burden previous gig.

Hey all, there is general consensus in another freelance group that I’m apart of that you can apply for unemployment as a freelancer if you were W2. I had always assumed freelancers were s.o.l.

What kind of liability insurance do you have? I'm a consultant for brands + agencies and i'm deciding if general liability, professional liability and/or Errors & Omissions are necessary. Any advice?

Help needed. Someone has asked me for a quote for freelance blog writing (8-10 per month, for a year). Do I just send a final figure or do I give a breakdown of everything? Does anyone use a template?

Is there a way to go around AB5? I am a full time fl designer working half the year through 1099 (s corp) and another half with w2. This is going to affect me significantly in the wages I am earning😢

Hope everyone is safe. Non-work related question: with all that’s happening and zero freelance prospects at the moment, how have you been dealing with paying rent? Has anyone spoken to their landlord?

Starting to freak out about the potential to get a project before my $ runs out. Any advice? Anyone hiring freelance strategists? I’ve exhausted my contacts.

For those who don’t know, in NY you are allowed to claim unemployment between gigs. The length of your most recent gig doesn’t matter. I’ve done it before after just a 5-day gig.

Are there any non immigrant workers with visa applying/collected unemployment? I’m on a O1 visa and would like to file, but worried how heavily this will affect Public Charge in the future.

Hey, Everyone. Just want to share some hope: I just landed a freelance gig with one of the OmniCom agencies. If I can do it, YOU DEFINITELY CAN. The light will get brighter.
