I work as a union carpenter. The last contractor I worked for reported all my wages to the state of Kentucy although I worked alot in Indiana which is the state I live in. When I got laid off and tried to open an Indiana claim it said not enough benefits were paid in. Said my most all my wages were reported to Kentucky. So by time I got them transferred to Indiana I missed two weeks of unemployment. Now Indiana telling me I can't receive that because I didn't open a claim in Indiana which I did try but said I didn't have enough wages to draw. Is this my employers fault?
