2011 Senate Bill 806: Revise unemployment insurance social welfare program

Amendment offered by Sen. Vincent Gregory (D) on December 1, 2011
To authorize unemployment insurance benefits for employees in a “work sharing” program, in which an employer temporarily reduces employee hours when business is depressed. The bill would establish detailed regulations that employer work sharing programs would have to meet for employees to still be eligible for unemployment benefits. This is essentially the proposal in Senate Bill 687. Note: Although the amendment originally passed, upon later reconsider it was rejected. Reportedly, Sen. Bruce Caswell plans to take up a similar measure in 2012.
The amendment passed 23 to 11 in the Senate on December 1, 2011.
