2011 Senate Bill 806: Revise unemployment insurance social welfare program

Passed 23 to 11 in the Senate on December 1, 2011.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To revise various elements of the state unemployment insurance social welfare system. This is part of the package authorizing state borrowing to pay off some $3.2 billion in unemployment system debt, owed because benefit payments exceeded payroll tax revenues (see Senate Bills 483 and 484). The bill would revise the formulas for assessing these payroll taxes on employers; require beneficiaries to accept alternative work at lower pay than currently required; increase required job-search disclosures and reporting by beneficiaries; clarify factors making an employee ineligible for unemployment benefits (like stealing or absenteeism); and more.
