Labor Department Documents & Publications
Agency: "Employment and Training Administration, Labor."
AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.
This notice announces a change in benefit period eligibility under the EB program that has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the State's EB status:
* Based on the data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on November 19, 2021, the seasonally-adjusted Total Unemployment Rate (TUR) for Alaska fell below the 6.5% threshold necessary to remain "on" in EB. Therefore the payable period in EB for Alaska will end on December 11, 2021.
The duration of benefits payable in the EB program, and the terms and conditions on which they are payable, are governed by the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970, as amended, and the operating instructions issued to the states by the U.S. Department of Labor. In the case of a state ending an EB period, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice to each individual who is currently filing a claim for EB of the forthcoming end of the EB period and its effect on the individual's rights to EB (20 CFR 615.13(c)(4)).
