Cite the Cervisi Court Decision when you submit your claim for unemployment.
The outcome of this landmark case allows part-time and/or temporary faculty to apply and receive UI between sessions of employment (e.g. summer, winter, etc.) when they are not teaching even if they have a contract for the following session. Your contract for an assignment could be cancelled at any time, therefore the “contract” can not be considered a reasonable assurance of future employment.
Based on the Cervisi Court Case, part time community college instructors do not have a future guarantee of work. Faculty applying for UI should state in the phone interview that their class(es) can be cancelled for multiple reasons, i.e. lack of funding, lack of students, bumping by a full-time faculty member, etc. CITE THE CERVISI DECISION IN YOUR CLAIM.
