3.1.4 Unemployment Insurance

Unemployment compensation is intended to provide a reduced level of compensation to those who become unemployed or laid-off from work and meet the specified conditions of eligibility.  The University contributes to the Mississippi State Unemployment Insurance Plan.  Employees may be eligible for unemployment benefits upon termination of service with the University, depending on state law and circumstances connected with termination.  The Mississippi Employment Security Commission makes the final determination for eligibility.
