Part-time Faculty Eligible for Unemployment
Most part-time community college faculty are eligible to receive unemployment compensation benefits during winter and summer breaks in their employment (or a semester during which you are not offered employment). Virtually all part-time faculty offers are contingent upon meeting minimum enrollment, funding levels, and program continuation. Such contingent offers do not constitute “reasonable assurance” or reemployment as defined in the state unemployment code. Thus, most part-time faculty are eligible for unemployment.
