For short-term, temporary layoffs file a Low Earnings and Partial Claim Report (UCB-114) through SCBOS.
Use this form if you have less than full-time work available for employees during a claim week and the employee will continue to have a position with the company. When filing a partial claim, it is important to report all earnings, including vacation pay and holiday pay, applicable to the week claimed.
You can file using this method for only six weeks per benefit year. After six weeks, the worker must contact a claims representative at 1-866-831-1724 if still unemployed. Do not file for UI benefits for workers who are not able and available for work. These individuals must contact a claims representative so DEW can determine eligibility.
