Summary:
Unemployment compensation; disqualifying misconduct; criminal convictions. Disqualifies discharged employees from receiving unemployment compensation if their employment was terminated because of conduct violating criminal laws. The bill establishes a presumption that conduct connected with an employee's work (and prompting his discharge) which (i) violates any criminal laws and (ii) results in a criminal conviction is presumed to be misconduct connected with his work unless the presumption is overcome by a preponderance of competent evidence to the contrary. Under current law, employees discharged because of misconduct connected with work are disqualified from receiving unemployment compensation benefits. However, misconduct is not currently defined in the statute amended by this legislation.
