In general, if you’re a teacher or other school employee and you have a reasonable expectation of returning to your job after the summer break, you may not be eligible for unemployment benefits during that time. This is because unemployment benefits are typically only available to individuals who are actively seeking work and are able to accept a job if one is offered to them.

Eligibility may be impacted by the following:

A claim being filed during a recess period (summer break is an example of a recess period)

An educator receives an offer to return to work for a school employer when the recess period ends.

Scoot is required by law to accurately report reasons for separation of employment, hours work, average pay, etc.

*Eligibility is determined by EDD Services
