Important Information for State Employees Regarding UI benefits During Budget Impasse
8/1/15 -The current state budget situation presents a unique and fluid set of circumstances. Existing precedent does not necessarily provide a definitive answer to every unemployment insurance question related to the situation.

Individuals are potentially subject to disqualification if they stop working and claim unemployment benefits in anticipation of possibly not receiving a paycheck on time.
