Employment and Training Administration, Labor.
This notice announces a retroactive change in benefit period eligibility under the EB program for Nevada.
The following change has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the State's EB status:
Based on Nevada's State law, which provides for the temporary adoption of the optional TUR trigger during periods of 100 percent Federal financing, and data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on May 22, 2020, the seasonally-adjusted total unemployment rate for Nevada rose to meet the 8.0 percent threshold to trigger “on” to a high unemployment period in EB. The payable period for Nevada under the high unemployment period is retroactive to June 7, 2020, and eligibility for claimants has been extended from a potential duration of up to 13 weeks to a potential duration of up to 20 weeks in the EB program.
The trigger notice covering state eligibility for the EB program can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims_arch.as
Information for Claimants
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 beginning an EB period, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice of potential entitlement to each individual who has exhausted all rights to regular benefits and is potentially eligible for EB (20 CFR 615.13(c)(1)).
Persons who believe they may be entitled to EB, or who wish to inquire about their rights under the program, should contact their State Workforce Agency.
