Current through Rules and Regulations filed through April 4, 2022

(1) Total and part-total claims. To claim credit for weeks of unemployment subsequent to a claim filed pursuant to this Section, the claimant shall complete a certification of eligibility as directed by the department and otherwise report as directed by the department.
(2) Partial claims. Form DOL-408, "Weekly Report of Low Earnings", mailed or delivered by the employer to the Georgia Department of Labor, shall constitute the claimant's weekly eligibility certification, provided that such form is properly executed by both employer and claimant. (See Rule 300-2-4-.09). The claimant must otherwise continue to report as directed by the department.
(3) For reasons found to constitute good cause, a claimant unable to report to the department as directed may be permitted to report within the two (2) day period following the date the claimant was directed to report. Good cause is defined as circumstances beyond the claimant's control, such as:
(a) An "act of God" or similar event which prevented the claimant from timely reporting;
(b) Death of an individual's immediate family member.
(i) The reporting requirements shall be waived for the day of the death and for four (4) consecutive calendar days thereafter.
(ii) As used in this rule, "immediate family member", means a spouse, child, stepchild, adopted child, grandchild, parent, grandparent, brother or sister of the individual or his or her spouse and the spouse of any of the foregoing; or
(c) Personal illness or disability of a temporary nature of claimant or a dependent family member which occurred in such a way to prevent the claimant from timely reporting, and the claimant made diligent efforts to give notice to the department prior to the time for the scheduled reporting date.
(4) Notwithstanding any provision of this rule, any notice of appeal must be filed within the time limitations specified in Chapter 5 of these rules.
