Curious if Illinois the same law that Wisconsin does? ..."We have a provision in our law which encourages a person to try out a job for up to 10 weeks"...."If things don't work out, they'll not be penalized for trying."

If someone is unemployed finds new work and it doesn't work out. Let's say they are let go after starting a new job b/c the company doesn't think they are going to be a good fit afterall.

I tried checking out the IDES site for Illinois and found nothing...not surprised!!

Information source below:

Unemployment Insurance Frequently Asked Questions About Fact-Finding Interviews, Adjudication and Eligibility Issues

I was offered a job which pays pretty good, but it's quite a distance away. I'd like to try it out, but what it it turns out I can't handle the commute?

We have a provision in our law which encourages a person to try out a job for up to 10 weeks. If they quit within the first 10 weeks because, for example, the commuting is excessive, we'll consider whether we'd have expected them to take the job in the first place. If we wouldn't have expected them to take the job because of the wages, conditions, distance, etc., we'll allow them to try the job out, see if things change, for up to 10 weeks. If things don't work out, they'll not be penalized for trying.

here's the link to where this information came from: Unemployment Insurance Frequently Asked Questions About Fact-Finding Interviews, Adjudication and Eligibility Issues


How does this affect a current unemployment claim?

I saw in today's paper that the bill to extend benefits was shot down, short of 4 votes. On the voice mail for certification of benefits and information it says there is emergency benefits available for Illinois. I cannot get through to the local office on the phones (no surprise). Can anyone offer information on this. I have not received my paperwork yet after my last check which was only for a week and a half? Does this automatically go through as other extensions have? Thanks

Default NEW- S.3520 - Unemployment Insurance Extension Act of 2010 BILL PROPOSED

Informing everyone about a new bill proposed Saturday to extend the exhausted unemployment benefits bill.

I went into About.com and found this under Unemployment Extension. There is good information here on writing Congress.
