On January 20, 2011, the Senate introduced a bill (S2580) that would require employers to provide additional information to workers each time the worker becomes unemployed (whether temporary or permanently). Currently, employers are required to provide the New Jersey Department of Labor’s BC-10 form, which provides information to individuals on how to claim unemployment benefits upon termination of employment. If passed, the new bill would also require employers to: 1) provide the date upon which the worker becomes unemployed, and if the unemployment is temporary, to the extent possible, the date upon which the worker is expected to be recalled to work; and 2) notify the individual that he or she may lose some or all benefits if he or she fails to file an unemployment claim in a timely manner.
