Unemployment insurance is temporary income for eligible workers who become unemployed through no fault of their own and who are ready, willing, and able to work and who have sufficient weeks and wages in covered employment. The Department of Labor determines whether an unemployed worker qualifies for unemployment insurance.
State employees are covered by unemployment insurance; should you become unemployed, please contact the local Department of Labor office for information. The New York State Department of Labor site contains detailed information on how to file a claim.
Workers’ Compensation benefits are intended to protect employees against a loss of income or employment when they have suffered an on-the-job injury or illness.
