Claimant denied benefits where he received reasonable assurance of continuing employment the following autumn

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

After the claimant, an adjunct professor, received a “reasonable assurance” letter that he would likely teach classes the next fall, he applied for benefits and was ultimately denied. The common pleas court found that the claimant had reasonable assurance that he would have employment the following year. The court of appeals agreed, finding that as long as a teacher has a reasonable assurance of continuing employment, the break between academic years was not an unanticipated period of employment (Kent State Univ. v. Hannam, Ohio Ct. of App., 11th Dist., No. 2018-P-0109, July 22, 2019).
