    Seasonal Information

    Description:
    If the individual expects to return to work with their employer after the quarantine is over, they should be eligible for Unemployment Insurance while they are quarantined. Because the individual expects to return to work for their employer, the requirement to make four new job contacts each week will be waived and they will not be required to look for work. If however, they lose their job as a result of the quarantine, then eligibility from the separation will need to be decided along with the individual's ability and availability to work while in quarantine.   If the individual is on paid leave, they are not considered unemployed since they are still receiving income from their employer.
