I had an open claim with a construction company that started January 15th 2017. It was seasonal work so we had lack of work in the winter. I took a new job in August 2017 working for a demolition company. Due to cold temperatures we had to get laid off on

I was laid off from my new job that I worked from August to December. Can I use an old claim from January 2017 that I had with my previous employer or do I need to start a new one?

Unemployment? When you file with the Department of Labor, probably on line, they will ask you.

Tell them everything the way it happened. It's hard not to get unemployment in New York. But if you misrepresent anything it's easy to be denied. Even on the phone. DOL's unemployment hearing officers have heard it all. Be honest and good luck.
