You may be out of work this summer due to low enrollment or lack of program classes. Before you apply for unemployment make sure you know your rights. Even though you may have a class in the fall, you DO NOT HAVE REASONABLE ASSURANCE of employment. Your class may be cancelled due to low enrollment, program changes or you could be “bumped” for a more senior faculty member. Be sure when you apply that EDD (Employment Development Department) knows that you do not have reasonable assurance of employment.
The decision determined by the lawsuit Cervisi vs. Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, noted that no part-time faculty member has reasonable assurance of employment for the next term or semester. If you are not sure if you have filled out the unemployment forms correctly or you just need a little help, contact us or a staff member at CFT.org. Listed below are a few resources to get you started.
