Raleigh, N.C. — The state House has passed a slim package of technical corrections to the state's unemployment law, which went into effect July 1.
U.S. Department of Labor officials wrote to the McCrory administration last week, saying that several parts of the bill were out of compliance with federal guidelines.
In particular, the measure clarifies when workers would lose eligibility for benefits due to participating in an ineligible training program. It also clarifies other provisions dealing with the loss of benefits when "suitable work" is available for a person on unemployment.
The Senate must now approve the fixes.
