What Is Meant By Duration Of Unemployment?

"Duration of unemployment" is the full period of unemployment after a disqualifying separation from an employer. This period continues until the applicant becomes employed at another job. An applicant may requalify for benefits if he/she obtains another job in covered employment, works at least six weeks, and earns wages equal to six times the amount needed to establish a qualifying week. In 2002, this amount is $1,032.00. Once again, the applicant's unemployment must have been for a lack of work or some other non­disqualifying reason. The written decision that suspended the payment of benefits for the "duration of unemployment" also explains the requirements to requalify for benefits.
