If you get a part-time job earning less than your UI benefits:

"If you are working part-time during any week for which you claim
unemployment insurance benefits, you may be eligible for partial
benefits. You must report your gross earnings (all earnings before
deductions) on your continued claim for the calendar week in which
you performed the work, even if you have not yet been paid.
You may earn up to $100 per week before any deductions are made
from your benefit payment. However, you must report all earnings,
even if under $100. Any earnings over $100 per week will be deducted
from your benefit payment on a dollar for dollar basis. Earnings
are considered payment, in any form, for any work or service performed,
including self-employment, tips and odd jobs. Commissions
are earnings but must be reported for the claim week in which you
are paid. NOTE: If you earn $110, report $110, do not deduct $100."

If you get a low paying full time job:

"What if I am working full time but earning less than my weekly benefit amount (WBA)?
If you are working full-time but earning wages that are less than your weekly benefit amount, you are not unemployed as defined by the Maryland Unemployment Insurance law. As a result, you are not entitled to either total or partial unemployment insurance benefits. Therefore, it is your responsibility to notify DUI staff that you are a full-time worker. Failure to disclose this fact may be viewed as an attempt to fraudulently collect unemployment insurance benefits."
