Nevada Unemployment Benefit Questions
When should I file benefits if I am receiving severance and/or vacation pay? Does receiving this pay disqualify me for Unemployment Benefits? For how long?
You should file your claim immediately upon becoming unemployed. During the interview process, you will be asked to report your severance and/or vacation pay. Your period of disqualification will be determined through Adjudication. Click here for more information on Unemployment Benefits, including applying online.
What do I do if I don’t have money to get back from a job?
If you are enrolled in one of the WIA programs, you may be eligible for transportation costs for a short period of time. There are no subsidies for employed individuals. For more information, get personal service from your local Nevada JobConnect Office.
Would an employer’s recent trend of laying off people and “shrinking” operations be enough to prove poor economic conditions within the company, or would more be required?
Even if an employer is laying individuals off due to a shortage of work, a person may be considered to be discharged if the reason for their separation was based on a cause other than a lack of work. Each case is reviewed individually and the circumstances surrounding the separation are taken into account when determining the nature of the separation.
