Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unemployment Insurance Act. In the case of a college or university meeting certain criteria, for services performed in an instructional, research, or principal administrative capacity, provides that a person is presumed not to have reasonable assurance of employment under an offer that is conditioned on enrollment, funding, or program changes. Provides that: it is the employer's burden to provide sufficient documentation to overcome the presumption; reasonable assurance must be determined on a case-by-case basis by the total weight of the evidence rather than the existence of any one factor; and primary weight must be given to the contingent nature of an offer of employment based on enrollment, funding, and program changes. Provides that a letter from an employer to an employee that makes employment conditional is not prima facie evidence of reasonable assurance to be used to deny a claim for unemployment insurance.
