     Handler: Wallingford

Current Bill Summary

- Prepared by Senate Research -

HB 278 - Under current law, charges shall not be made against the unemployment benefits account of an employer with respect to benefits paid to any individual unless that individual was employed for longer than a probationary period of 28 days. This act extends that probationary period to 90 days.

This provision is identical to a provision in SCS/HB 332 (2019) and substantially similar to SB 157 (2019).

Under current law, the Division of Employment Security is required to send certain notices to employers personally or by registered mail to the last known principal place of business of the employer. This act modifies those provisions by requiring such notice to be served by certified mail directed to the last known address of the employer, except in the case of any notice of the assessment of contributions, interest, or penalties after an original assessment of contributions, interest, or penalties are not paid when due, in which case further notice may be sent by mail to the last known address of the employer.

This provision is substantially similar to SB 228 (2019) and a provision in the truly agreed to SCS/SB 90 (2019).
