AB-1066 Unemployment insurance: trade disputes: eligibility for benefits. (2019-2020)


 Section 1262 of the Unemployment Insurance Code is amended to read:

 (a)  An individual is not eligible for unemployment compensation benefits, and these benefits shall not be payable to him or her,  payable,  if the individual left his or her  work because of a trade dispute. The individual shall remain ineligible for the period during which he or she continues out of work by reason of the fact that the trade dispute is still in active progress in the establishment in which he or she  dispute, other than a lockout in the establishment where the individual  was employed.
(b) The ineligibility of an individual to receive benefits pursuant to subdivision (a) shall expire after the first four weeks of the trade dispute and shall, thereafter, be eligible. The one-week waiting period required by Section 1253 shall not be required in addition to the waiting period established in this subdivision.
(c) Nothing in this section shall diminish the eligibility of individuals who were deprived of work as a result of an employer lockout or similar action under the principles set out in Coast Packing Co. v. California Unemployment Ins. Appeals Bd. (1966) 64 Cal.2d 76.
