How long is unemployment aloowed to answer a case request?

I am in the mortgage industry and am required to go to the office full-time weekly. I have done this work for 12+ years and am W-2 but paid by the employer on a percentage basis. Because of the market I have been unable to do the business coming in ( credit, income, values). I have not received a paycheck from my employer since December 15. I had applied for unemployment because of this. I applied from the beginning of January, they sent me another form to complete within 10 days which I did. I still have not received anydecision but keep on filing weekly. How is this considered a job anymor with no pay? Are they required to a tleast pay minimum wage? Thank you

Unemployment usually tries to make decisions quickly, but your situation is unusual and is probably requiring more work on their part. It's not clear from your situation WHY you are not receiving a paycheck. If you are continuing to work but just not being paid, then you have a wage claim potentially.
