The unemployment insurance program avails benefits to persons who have become unemployed as a fault that is not of their making. This program will also be availed to individuals who are ready, able and more than willing to work and are engaged in active efforts to seek work. The benefits are also available to individuals who have been working in the State of New York for the past eighteen months.
In order to be eligible to receive these benefits, you must meet all the qualifying procedures as laid down by the law. These benefits are not given to individuals who have less than the minimum required wages as well as a job to establish an unemployment claim.
Eligibility to unemployment benefits is determined only when a claim has been filed and when all the relevant information has been gathered. The determination of eligibility rests upon the New York State Unemployment Insurance Law, stare decisis or legal precedents.
An individual is considered as being eligible for unemployment benefits in the State of New York if he/she lost their job as a result of inadequate or unavailability of work. This may be as a result of the ending of seasonal or temporary employment, elimination of your job, an involuntary reduction in the workforce, downsizing or shutting down of a company, reorganization or restriction of the company, no funds for company operations and other reasons that may result in the involuntary suspension or expulsion from your work. An individual is also eligible to receive these benefits if he was fired or discharged due to an inability to meet the employer’s production standards or demands as well as the inability to meet the qualifications of the employer for the job.
You may also be denied your unemployment benefits if it can be shown that you were fired as a result of violating company policy, rules or procedures like insubordination, absenteeism, disputes or disagreements with co-workers or with the boss, as well as being fired for any other reason of your making. You will not also be eligible to receive this unemployment compensation if you quit your job voluntarily. In addition, you will not receive your benefits if you are unemployed as a result of work stoppage in the past forty-nine days which was performed contrary to the existing collective bargaining agreement in your place of work. You do not have to be a participant in the strike. The mere fact that you are not working as a result of the strike is sufficient reason for the denial of these benefits.
