Q: If an employee signed a confidentiality agreement, can they release information the company feels is proprietary during an unemployment insurance eligibility review or hearing?
A: Information provided to the Employment Security Division for the purpose of proper administration of unemployment compensation is considered privileged information and can be used in no other manner than determining eligibility rights. This protection is provided under law.

Q: What are the definitions for "discharge" and "layoff?"
A: An individual has been laid off due to a lack of work when there is no work available for the individual to perform. An individual is discharged when the employer releases an individual for cause, for any reason other than a failure to pass probation, to tardiness to any violation of company policy. A discharge usually results in the separating employee being replaced by a new employee. Only discharges for reasons of misconduct are disqualifying under Nevada Unemployment Law.

Q: What are the state required workplace posters for Nevada, and how can I obtain them?
A: Both State and Federal requirements, and downloadable posters, are available through the U.S. Department of Labor.

Q: What do I do if I don't have money to get back from a job?
A: If you are enrolled in one of the WIA programs, you may be eligible for transportation costs for a short period of time. There are no subsidies for employed individuals. For more information, get personal service from your local Nevada JobConnect Office.

Q: What is an employee's rights to replacement Group Insurance after termination?
A: Contact the Nevada Office of the Labor Commissioner.

Q: What is the correct greeting when you don't know you'll be looking at your resume cover letter?
A: Call the company and ask for the name of the person who'll be receiving your letter. Failing that, use "Dear Recruiter or Hiring Manager," "To whom it may concern" is the laziest-sounding greeting of all, and many recruiters say they don't even read letters addressed that way.

Q: When should I file benefits if I am receiving severance and/or vacation pay? Does receiving this pay disqualify me for Unemployment Benefits? For how long?
A: You should file your claim immediately upon becoming unemployed. During the interview process, you will be asked to report your severance and/or vacation pay. Your period of disqualification will be determined through Adjudication. Click here for more information on Unemployment Benefits, including applying online.

Q: Would an employer's recent trend of laying off people and "shrinking" operations be enough to prove poor economic conditions within the company, or would more be required?
A: Even if an employer is laying individuals off due to a shortage of work, a person may be considered to be discharged if the reason for their separation was based on a cause other than a lack of work. Each case is reviewed individually and the circumstances surrounding the separation are taken into account when determining the nature of the separation.
