The simple answer to this question is - there is not a simple answer.  Basically, if you are working on a w-2 basis and earn no more than 40% of your weekly unemployment benefit, you will not lose any unemployment benefits.  After that, you will suffer a reduction in benefits.  If you are working on a 1099 basis, an independent contractor basis, then you may well be disqualified from receiving benefits.
