And they stay on forever.
I’m still paying $100 per week to a guy who hasn’t worked a day since 2011. Unfortunately, his pay check for those 2011 hours was received in 2012 (January). He was laid off because of excessive absence, slovenly hygiene, and coming to work drunk. But Unemployment granted him benefits, and I am still paying.
He spent much of last year in the hospital in detox.
They have some rule in this state that if they are approved for benefits in any calendar year, they get to collect for the whole year, whether they are available for work, or not. The employer seems to have no say.
Make that motherf___r pick up trash around your business for 10 buck an hour for 10 hours a week. Work him just enough to not get his UE. Of course its probably worth the money to keep him away.
