Governor Mckee signed these bills into law on May 21st.  SB 858 and HB 6249 contain the same information. These measures increase the total amount of earnings a partial unemployment claimant can receive before complete disqualification for unemployment benefits and would increase the disregarded amount of earnings when calculating a weekly benefit rate.

For weeks beginning on or after May 23, 2021, through June 30, 2022, an employee will be deemed partially unemployed in any week of less than full-time work if they fail to earn wages for that week in an amount equal to or greater than 150% of the weekly benefit rate for total unemployment to which they would be entitled if totally unemployed and eligible. An individual partially unemployed and eligible in any week must be paid benefits in an amount equal to the weekly benefit rate to which they would be entitled if totally unemployed in that week less any wages earned in that week, and their benefits combined may not exceed in the amount 150% of the individual’s weekly benefit rate.

For weeks ending on or after May 23, 2021, through June 30, 2022, “wages” includes only that part of the remuneration for any work that is in excess of 50% of the weekly benefit rate for total unemployment, rounded to the next lower multiple of one dollar, to which the individual would be entitled if totally unemployed and eligible in any one week, and “services” includes only that part of any work for which remuneration in excess of 50% of the weekly benefit rate for total unemployment, rounded to the next lower multiple of one dollar
$1.00, to which the individual would be entitled if totally unemployed and eligible in any one week is payable.

How does this impact employers?

During this period, claimants may qualify to collect unemployment benefits more often than previously or subsequently. As claims during this period are not to be used in the calculation of unemployment tax rates, tax-paying employers will not be impacted. Unfortunately, for reimbursable employers, they will receive additional charges to their account per the national legislation (prior to March 31, 2021, 50% of benefits collected, after March 31, 2021, 25% of benefits collected).
