Unemployment

Unemployment for Part-timers

During Summer and Winter breaks, part-timers without sufficient earnings from other employment are entitled to receive unemployment insurance benefits. If you are “underemployed,” you may still be eligible for some benefits. We are not eligible for unemployment benefits over Spring break.

Apply as soon as possible on or after your last day of work. Your application is retroactive only to the Sunday of the week in which you apply. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will get a check.

NEW: You may be asked to list your gross earnings for previous quarters. To find that information: Log in to Web4

Go to Employee Services/Pay Information/Earnings History Set the dates you want to see and click “Display”.

You must report your gross earnings for your last week worked before the break. If you claim benefits for the first (flex) week of the semester following the break, you must report your gross earnings for that week. You may also have to report your gross earnings for the second week of the semester following the break.

For instructions on how to calculate gross earnings for those weeks, see below.

How to Report Earnings for PBL Assignments

  • For full-semester assignments, you are deemed to work the same workdays as full-timers, including flex days. Your semester runs January 12 – May 24, 2017, no matter which of those days you actually worked.
  • You are eligible for unemployment benefits for semester break even if you don’t get your last paycheck until after the semester ends.
  • Some short-term assignments are paid over the entire semester, and some are not. Check FLAC: Log in to Web4. Choose Employee Services, then Faculty Load and Compensation, then Compensation and Acknowledgement. Choose credit or non-credit and click “Go.” Now click on the name of the assignment.
  • Short-term assignments are now PBL, even if they were paid hourly in the past. The Web4 paystubs list hours and hourly rates that are completely erroneous – you are NOT paid hourly, except for subbing and office hours.
  • If it says “Full Term,” the assignment was reported to EDD as full-term. Use the instructions below, even if your actual work-dates were different.
  • If it says “Not Full Term,” check with your department chair or with the payroll department for your assignment dates. Your last day of work for the purpose of applying for unemployment was the last day of your assignment. Do not assume it’s the same as the last day you actually worked. Unless you also have a full-term assignment, you are eligible for unemployment as soon as your assignment is over.
  • Subbing and Office Hours are still paid hourly. See “How to Report Earnings for Subbing and office Hours,” below.

Earnings for the Last Week of Spring 2017, May 22-24:

  • Step 1: Find your total gross pay for all PBL assignments in Spring 2017. There are three ways to do this:
    • Log in to Web4/Employee Services/Faculty Load and Compensation/Compensation and Acknowledgement. Add up the totals for all your assignments. (Non-instructional assignments are usually listed under credit.)
    • OR, if your pay is the same as last semester, look at each of your Fall 2015 paystubs and add up the gross pay for all PBL assignments.
    • OR, if you had only PBL semester-long assignments, you can look at any Spring 2017 paystub and multiply by five.
  • Step 2: There are 87 faculty workdays in Spring 2017.
    Divide semester PBL pay by 87 = daily PBL pay for Spring 2017.
  • Step 3: There are 3 workdays in the last week of the semester.
    Multiply daily PBL pay times 3 = gross PBL earnings for this week to be reported to EDD.

Earnings for the First (Flex) Week of Fall 2017, Aug. 17-18:

  • Step 1: Start with your Spring 2017 gross pay for PBL assignments (step 1 above). If your load, step, or column will change in Fall 2017, you will have to make an adjustment:
    • FLAC information will probably be posted in Web4 by the time you have to file this information, so you can repeat step 1, above, for Fall 2017.
    • If FLAC information is not available in Web4, you can figure out your new earnings here: http://www.aft2121.org/check-your-check/
  • Step 2: Divide semester PBL pay by 88 = daily PBL pay for Fall 2017;
  • Step 3: There are two work-days this week (flex days August 17 and 18). Multiply daily PBL pay times two = gross PBL earnings for this week to be reported to EDD.

Earnings for the Second Week of Fall 2017, Aug. 21-25:

  • Gross earnings for this week only need be reported if this week is included on your Continued Claim Form, or if you are “underemployed” and entitled to partial benefits.
  • There are 5 workdays this week.
  • Multiply your daily PBL pay for Fall 2017 (calculated above) times 5 = gross PBL earnings for this week to be reported to EDD.

How to Report Earnings for Subbing and Office Hours

  • Day-to-day subbing and office hours are still paid hourly. Your last day of work in Spring 2017 for an hourly assignment is the last day you actually worked.
  • Unless you also have a PBL assignment, you will then be eligible for unemployment benefits for the semester break even though the semester may not be over and you may not have received your last paycheck.
  • Earnings for the Last Week of Work in Spring 2017:
  • Multiply the number of hours worked times your hourly pay rate. The result is your gross earnings for this week for hourly assignments.
  • You can find the hourly rates for subbing on your Web4 paystub, or here:
  • http://www.aft2121.org/wp-content/uploads/Hourly-Subbing-.pdf
  • Sorry, we don’t have the office hour rates posed as a separate page yet. You can find them in our contract, page 201: http://www.aft2121.org/wp-content/uploads/2017-03-14-SFCCD-AFT-2015-2018-CBA- FINAL-v2.pdf
  • Hourly rates listed on Web4 paystubs are ONLY accurate for hourly assignments.
