Unemployment on Work History - i129-f

I'm in a seasonal layoff with my company because of the weather and am claiming unemployment insurance but will be starting work back up in march. I'm considered 'Employer Attached' and still work for the company. Do I need to put unemployment insurance in my work history or do I just put the place I work for? Thanks!

I assume you are the Canadian, as you are receiving unemployment benefit than I would put yourself down as unemployed.

Hey, Thanks for the response! I am an american who's petitioning for my Canadian fiance. I'm still employed i'm just on unemployment benefits due to the winter season because there isn't any work. I'm not sure if I should put unemployed or just put down my employer.

Seems fairly simple scenario, the more complicated issue could be sponsorship, will you be back earning by the time that arises?

I'm using my grandmother as a co-sponsor. I'm just trying to figure out what I need to put on the i129-f. 

I dont want to just put unemployed because I'm actually still employed just in a seasonal layoff and don't want the officer to get the wrong idea and deny us.

I would keep it simple, sounds like your job is being kept open for when there is work, which is not now and you are unemployed and available for work. Well in my State to get unemployment benefit you have to be available to work.

Could you say something like "temporary seasonal layoff"? That would tell them that you are currently not working but will be back to work with the same employer soon.

You won't get the I-129F denied because you're unemployed.  

Put unemployed.  Why do you not take temporary work during this seasonal layoff?

That's a relief to know! =] I'll just put Temporary Seasonal Unemployment and when I return to work. I tried looking into some temporary work but nothing payed more then I'm already getting on unemployment insurance. I'm just taking this time to work on a business I'm starting up.

I'm not sure how unemployment works in the USA, however in Canada you have to say that you're ready, willing, and able to work, and provide proof of actively looking for work, to be in unemployment.  

But I understand when your unemployment is paying more than a normal job.  when I first started working here my paychecks were barely less than my unemployment from Canada at 55% of my income.
