LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 274, Garrick. Unemployment insurance benefits: claims: right to respond.
Existing law requires the Employment Development Department to provide notice of the filing of an unemployment claim to the claimant’s last employing unit, and requires the employing unit to submit, within 10 days after the mailing of the notice, any facts that may affect the claimant’s eligibility for benefits, as specified, and permits this 10-day period to be extended for good cause.
This bill would additionally require the department, when notifying an employing unit that an unemployment claim has been filed, to provide a direct link to its Internet Web site to the page that describes what circumstances establish good cause for an extension of the 10-day period during which the employer may submit facts on the claim, in accordance with specified procedures.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.
