§ 65.71. Compensation for partial unemployment.

 (a)  In determining the amount of compensation to which an eligible claimant is entitled for a week of partial unemployment which has caused the claimant a loss of earnings, due either to lack of work or unavailability for work, the Bureau shall estimate the amount of earnings which the claimant would have earned had he been actually employed during that week.

 (b)  Compensation for the week shall be made in an amount equal to the weekly benefit rate of the claimant, less the sum of the estimated amount of his earnings and his actual earnings for the week, to the extent that the payments are in excess of partial benefit credit of the claimant.

 (c)  In estimating the amount of earnings which a claimant would have received for the hours during which he was unavailable for work the Bureau shall prorate his actual hourly earnings for the week, unless some other method of estimation would be fairer and more reasonable.


   The provisions of this §  65.71 adopted July 1, 1969.
