Washington has amended the rules under its Unemployment Compensation Law as follows:
Training benefits. In order to be eligible for training benefits as a dislocated worker, an individual must have been separated from his or her employer due to a permanent reduction in operations at the place of employment or for a reason that is not disqualifying. When deciding whether a separation from employment makes an individual eligible for training benefits, the Department will look at the last job held for a period of at least seven weeks.
Training plan. In most cases, an individual has 90 days to submit a training plan to the Department for approval, beginning on the date that he or she is notified about the eligibility requirements for training benefits. For new claims, the deadline is 95 days from the date an application for benefits is filed.
If an individual returns to work and subsequently becomes unemployed, the time frames described above begin with the date he or she files an additional claim for benefits.
