1 Part-time faculty Filing for unemployment benefits OR It was a dark and stormy night...

2 ... was there anyone who understood the plight of part-time faculty? 0 Part-time faculty members are temporary, at-will employees. 0 Part-time faculty members are not guaranteed continuing employment. 0 Receiving a Load Sheet for the following semester is not a guarantee of continuing employment. 0 Receiving a verbal or written agreement for classes is not a guarantee of continuing employment. The Scream by Edvard Munch

3 0 The Good News is that you get to apply for unemployment or reduced employment compensation! 0 Apply on the last day of the semester even if you haven’t received your final paycheck. 0 There is a one-week waiting period after you apply (an EDD week is Sunday – Saturday). 0 Apply online at 0 Or call EDD at (be prepared to wait... and wait... and wait...) Professional, dedicated faculty, who, after pondering their predicament, decide to apply for unemployment.

4 The application, it turned out, was easy, but oh so tricky! Some sample questions: 0 Do you expect to return to work for a former employer? 0 Do you have a date to start work? 0 Are you returning to work the next school session? 0 Has your employer given you reasonable assurance, either verbal, written, or implied, of returning to work for the next school session? Suggested answers: No, no, no, and no!

5 The night passed slowly as she clicked and reclicked the beads on the abacus. 0 You must provide 18 months of employment/salary history. EDD will base your claim on the highest quarter earnings. 0 The college’s payroll department should have this information. 0 Dates of employment mean the first day the semester began and the last day the semester ended. 0 Do not use the dates you received your paychecks.

6 Suddenly, the drip, drip of the rain was interrupted by the phone ringing... 0 You will receive a notice for the date and time of your phone interview. 0 A list of questions is provided on the back of the notice. 0 Keep your answers short! 0 Remember – you are not on semester break or recess. You simply don’t have a job 

7 In her darkest hour, she was denied benefits 0 If you are denied benefits, you have 20 days to appeal. 0 If you are a member of CCA, you are entitled to consult with a CCA representative. 0 Most claims are won at the first stage of appeal. 0 Cite the Cervisi Decision. The full text can be found on the CCA website. Go to cca4me.org. Roy Lichtenstein, Hopeless, 1963

8 But as the storm clouds cleared, she had reason to be hopeful... 0 Once your claim is opened, it is open for a year. You can reopen it to receive benefits during Winter Break. 0 Go to the EDD website and fill out the application to reopen your benefits. 0 You will receive a booklet titled A Guide to Benefits and Employment Services that answers most questions.

9 Help is on the way! 0 cca4me.org: click on “Issues & Action” click on “Part-time Issues” 0 Cathy Levitt – CODAA Executive Board 0 0 Marianne Reynolds – CCA Staff Consultant, Region IV 0 (714)
