AN ACT PROVIDING THE DIVISION OF EMPLOYMENT SECURITY WITH FLEXIBILITY IN DETERMINING THE ELIGIBILITY OF MULTISTATE WORKERS FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE BENEFITS IN NORTH CAROLINA AND APPROPRIATING FUNDS TO STUDY BEST PRACTICES TO HANDLE CLAIMS BY THOSE WORKERS.
Amends GS 126-15.01 to require that the Division of Employment Security (Division) exercise maximum flexibility when determining eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits for individuals who are employed in industries requiring them to work in this State and other states during a benefit year. Requires determinations to be made on a case-by-case basis.
Appropriates $100,000 for 2020-21 from the General Fund to the Division to (1) study how to mitigate effects of working in multiple states during the benefit year that determines an individual's eligibility for unemployment benefits in this State; and (2) review the effect on employers of having employees work in states other than NC during the benefit year. Effective July 1, 2020.
