i live in california. I am a seasonal firefighter. At the end of the season I apply for unemployment benefits. This year I received a phone call on april 24, it was human resources offering me my job back. Work was to begin in two weeks on May 7. Whether I accepted or not, I would still be out of work until May 7. I declined, and now I am being denied my unemployment benefits from april 24 to
may 7. Can they do this? Either way I was still out of work for those two weeks.

And you could have collected your unemployment for those 2 weeks because you would not have earned any money. By turning down a legitimate job offer, which was probably at your normal rate of pay, you made yourself unqualified for unemployment.
