Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unemployment Insurance Act. In a provision making certain academic personnel ineligible for unemployment benefits during the period between 2 successive academic years if there is a reasonable assurance such individuals would perform services for the educational institution during the period immediately following the first academic year or term, provides that in order for there to be "reasonable assurance" certain requirements must be met, including, but not limited to: (i) the educational institution has made an offer of employment in the following academic year or term that is either written, oral, or implied; (ii) the employment offered in the following academic year or term is in the same capacity; and (iii) based on a totality of the circumstances, it is highly probable that there is a job available for the claimant in the following academic year or term. Requires determinations by the Department of Employment Security to be done on a case-by-case basis. Requires each educational institution to provide the Department, in a form prescribed by the Director of Employment Security, no less than 10 business days prior to the end of the academic year or term: (1) a list of all employees who the educational institution has concluded do not have a reasonable assurance of employment in the following academic year or term; and (2) for each employee that the educational institution maintains does have a reasonable assurance of employment in the following academic year or term, a statement explaining the manner in which the employee was given a reasonable assurance of employment. Provides that an educational institution's failure to provide the statement required under item (2) shall result in a rebuttable presumption that the claimant does not have a reasonable assurance of employment in the following academic year or term. Provides that any rules adopted to implement the amendatory Act must meet federal requirements.
