FORMERLY

HOUSE BILL NO. 22

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 33, TITLE 19 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION AND CRITERIA FOR DISQUALIFICATION FOR BENEFITS.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend Section 3315(1), Chapter 33, Title 19 of the Delaware Code by inserting after the words "upon separation from a subsequent employer." as they appear therein, a new last sentence to read as follows:

An individual who becomes unemployed solely as the result of completing a period of employment that was of a seasonal, durational, temporary, or casual duration and the Department determines there is evidence that it was the intent of the individual and the employer prior to the undertaking of such employment for the individual to work for a period of specific, limited duration of less than 130 days, and the individual works less than 130 days, will be considered to have left work voluntarily without good cause attributable to such work and will be subject to the provisions of this subsection. No individual, however, collecting benefits immediately preceding the acceptance of seasonal, durational, temporary, or casual employment shall lose the right to benefits upon the completion of such employment, regardless of duration, if otherwise qualified."

Approved July 10, 1990.
