    Bill Summary

    This bill excludes periods of temporary total disability under the Workers' Compensation Law from the calculation of "base period" for purposes of unemployment compensation.

    Under present law, a person receiving unemployment benefits receives between $256 and $275 per week, depending on the average total wages for insured work paid to the person in the two calendar quarters in the individual's base period in which the total wages are highest. "Base period" means, with respect to each claimant:
    (1) The first four of the last five completed calendar quarters; or
    (2) If using the method described in (1) the claimant doesn't have sufficient wages to qualify for unemployment benefits, then the last four completed calendar quarters immediately preceding the first day of the claimant's benefit year.

    This bill specifies that for the purposes of establishing a base period in cases involving persons receiving workers' compensation benefits for temporary total disability, the department of labor and workforce development must exclude periods of such disability from the base period and determine the base period from the last four completed quarters of work before any such disability.
