TO PROVIDE THAT AN INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS BEEN AWARDED UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE BENEFITS BY THE EMPLOYMENT SECURITY COMMISSION, BUT DOES NOT RECEIVE THOSE BENEFITS AS THE RESULT OF AN ACT OR OMISSION OF THE COMMISSION, IS DEEMED AN AGGRIEVED PARTY FOR THE PURPOSES OF JUDICIAL REVIEW WITHOUT THE REQUIREMENT TO EXHAUST ADMINISTRATIVE REMEDIES.
Enacts new GS 95-12(b)(1)d. (but appears to enact new GS 96-12(b)(1)d.) to direct the Employment Security Commission (Commission) to immediately pay unpaid benefits, if an individual was awarded unemployment benefits but failed to receive the benefits due to an act or omission of the Commission. Specifies that the Commission’s failure to rectify and pay benefits owed makes the individual an aggrieved party who is not required to exhaust administrative remedies, and may obtain injunctive and other relief.
