Representative Liston, prime sponsor, presented Senate Bill 09-178 concerning the waiver of certain eligibility conditions for unemployment insurance benefits for unemployed individuals attached to regular jobs. This bill requires the director of the Division of Employment and Training to waive the requirement for employees attached to regular jobs to register for work and report to an employment office as a condition of being eligible to receive unemployment insurance (UI) benefits for a period of 26 weeks. These are claimants who are unemployed due to a temporary lack of work from their most recent employer, but anticipate returning to work with that employer.
Representative Liston responded to questions about the fiscal note.
03:17 PM -- Jeff Clayton, legislative liaison for the Department of Labor and Employment, testified in support of the bill and addressed earlier questions.
