    Default Unemployment Exemption

    My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Illinois

    I know the majority of this forum is for employee rights but I am asking about employer rights.

    I am part of a Nursing Agency. For those who are unfamiliar with Nursing Agencies, we basically find work for nurses (RNs, LPNs, and CNAs) with various nursing homes and hospitals we work with. The nature of this business is strictly temporary and instable. We cannot guarantee any amount of hours/week of work. Several of our employees have filed for unemployment on the grounds of insufficient work. We have filed on a couple of occasions proof that they were indeed ineligible. Because of the nature of the business it is impossible for us to guarantee work. I am wondering if there is any way so that our corporation becomes ineligible for unemployment specifically for insufficient work? Having to file proof that each and every employee who file for unemployment because of insufficient work is getting very costly. Sometimes we have had to file twice because IDES continues to give unemployment benefits.

    many, if not most people, are terminated because of no work available for the employees. That is what UI is specifically for.

    If you have insufficient work for your employees they are going to qualify for unemployment, no matter how inconvenient or costly you may find it.

    Not only will you not be declared "ineligible" your rates will likely increase.

    My suggestion; don't hire employees you don't have sufficient work for. Unemployment is geared very much in favor of the employee, not the employer. If they are on your payroll and you do not have work for them, they are eligible whether you can "guarantee" work for them or not.

    That is what I feared. We have been telling our employees from the day we hire them that we cannot guarantee full time work and that we should be looked at for part time or supplementary work. I guess we will just have to be more cautious of hiring.

    Thanks for everyones input!
