Individuals working in or for a school may not be eligible for unemployment insurance benefits during breaks or in between terms.  Federal and state law both have specific provisions for these types of workers. The KDOL website includes FAQ guides that answer questions like:

  • who is considered a school employee,
  • what is reasonable assurance and
  • how is eligibility determined
