2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill alters benefit eligibility conditions for unemployment insurance (UI) for certain seasonal workers. The bill provides that UI benefits payable to a worker in a seasonal industry or occupation will not be paid for any week which commences during a period between two successive seasons of that industry or occupation if the worker performs services in the first of such seasons and there is a reasonable assurance that the worker will perform those services in the second of such seasons. The bill also provides that the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development has the authority to designate an industry or occupation as seasonal and determine the length of the regularly recurring period of work during which the seasonal industry or occupation operates. The bill defines "seasonal industry or occupation" as an industry or occupation which customarily operates only during a regularly recurring period of less than 36 weeks of work in a calendar year. However, the bill provides that construction is not included in the definition of "seasonal industry or occupation."
