An Act To Revise Laws Regarding Unemployment That Were Amended or Affected by Recently Enacted Legislation, Sen. Volk (R-Cumberland)
This bill changes the laws governing how benefits paid to an eligible individual under the Employment Security Law are charged against the experience rating record of the individual's previous employers and applies these changes beginning 1/1/20. The biennial budget also changed this law and applied the changes beginning 1/1/18. Until 1/1/20 the experience rating record of the most recent subject employer may not be charged with benefits paid to an eligible individual whose work record with that employer totaled 5 consecutive weeks or less. The bill has been carried over to a Special Session.
