Associate Faculty & Unemployment

Associate faculty may file for unemployment during summer and winter breaks, if they are not otherwise employed.  The right to collect unemployment is based on an Appellate Court decision, Cervisis et al vs. Unemployment Insurance Board.  Because Associate faculty contracts are "contingent upon adequate class enrollment and funding", the Appellate Court concluded that the assignments are not a reasonable assurance of employment.  Filing must be done in a timely manner. If your claim is denied, file an appeal.
