TRENTON – Governor Phil Murphy has signed S2852, which clarifies when employees that are denied employment during a summer or holiday break are eligible for unemployment benefits by setting forth a standard for determining whether there is a reasonable assurance of reinstatement after the break.
“Our adjunct professors have too often been caught in limbo in terms of their eligibility for unemployment benefits,” said Governor Murphy. “This legislation will provide adjunct instructors and other employees the clarity they need to receive full unemployment benefits so they can get back on their feet.”
