A bit about unemployment

Given yesterday's T&G article about unemployment, two points about the Worcester Public Schools:
  •  Worcester Public Schools employees who are school year only, like bus drivers and crossing guards, are given "a reasonable assurance of return" in the fall, and as such are not eligible for unemployment benefits. Thus the bit in the article about that doesn't apply to Worcester.
  • In FY11, mentioned in the article, the Worcester Public Schools laid off 140 employees. When we lay off employees, we reimburse the state for unemployment.
