Access to Unemployment Benefits
Contingent faculty are often denied unemployment insurance benefits in a system that does not recognize anything other than tenured, ongoing teaching positions. A new handbook aims to guide instructors through the hurdles of receiving unemployment benefits:
"Access to Unemployment Insurance Benefits for Contingent Faculty: A manual for applicants and a strategy to gain full rights to benefits" by Joe Berry, Beverly Stewart, and Helena Worthen.
Updated and published with beautiful graphics after generous financial help from the National Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers and the American Association of University Professors.
