Strengthening Unemployment Insurance
MetadataShow full item record
A person’s eligibility for unemployment insurance in New York State is determined by the New York State Unemployment Insurance Law. A person may be eligible for benefits if he lost his job due to a lack of work, such as the end of seasonal or temporary employment or the downsizing of a company. A person may also be eligible if he was fired because he did not meet an employer’s qualifications for a job. A worker may be denied unemployment benefits if he was fired for cause, quit his job, or was not working because of a work stoppage in violation of a current collective bargaining agreement.
