Looking for work requires more than four hours a week

by on
in Compensation and Benefits,Human Resources

Some workers aren’t terribly diligent about finding work once they are laid off and deemed eligible for unemployment compensation. It may not be reasonable to spend eight hours a day seeking a new job, but a court has ruled that a good-faith effort to find work certainly requires more than a handful of hours a week making phone calls and searching the web.

Recent case: Mai lost her teaching position when her certification ex­­pired and she didn’t pursue renewal. She filed for unemployment benefits and initially received them. But when officials questioned her, it turned out Mai wasn’t doing much to find a job. She testified that she spent about three or four hours a week looking for work. That wasn’t good enough: Her benefits were cut. (Diallo v. Depart­­ment of Employment and Eco­­nomic Development, No. A12-0273, Court of Appeals of Minnesota, 2012)
