Budget woes have led 10 states—Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina and Wisconsin—to pass laws in the first half of 2011 to reduce unemployment insurance (UI) benefits or tighten eligibility requirements—or both, says a new report by the National Employment Law Project.

Some states, in­­cluding Florida, have broadened the definition of “misconduct” that makes ex-employees ineligible for unemployment ben­­efits. See the report at www.tinyurl.com/UIreport.
