Everyone’s claim is different but hopefully these scenarios help you to better understand the new temporary rule.
Scenario One: Your employer has two shifts for your position. Because your partner can only watch the kids during the evening shift, you must be available for the other shift to be considered ‘available to work.’
Previously, you had to be available for all shifts during a day to qualify for benefits.
Scenario 2: Your employer has 3 shifts for your position. Now that your child is back in school, you must be able and available to work the morning or day shift.
