Employment Policies and Procedures
Policy last updated:  Dec 1, 2006

Applies to: All regular employees*

*Specific eligibility to be determined by state employment offices

All regular College employees are covered under the provisions of the unemployment compensation law of the state where they actually worked while employed by the College. For most employees, this will be the state of New Hampshire.

An employee who becomes fully or partially unemployed may be eligible for benefits. The decision on each claim will be made by the employee's state employment office.

Procedure:

Information about eligibility is available at any state employment office in the United States.  Persons who may have claims should, if possible, apply at an office in the state where they worked and against which a claim will be made.

In order to establish eligibility for benefits, the employee should immediately (at least within three days after becoming unemployed) go in person to the nearest state unemployment office to register for work and to file a claim.
