Ohio instructors seek unemployment compensation



Published: Fri, July 5, 2013 @ 9:58 a.m.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Faculty groups are trying to guide part-time college instructors through state and federal unemployment compensation rules as they seek state aid in between terms.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the Akron-based New Faculty Majority and Ohio Part-Time Faculty Association have had “filing parties” and a Web seminar to help steer adjuncts through the process of collecting unemployment over summer.

Adjunct instructors work from term to term. Many don’t get health care through their employer.

The newspaper says it’s unclear how many adjuncts are filing for unemployment. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services won’t release claim numbers on individual employers, citing privacy rules.

Adjunct instructors at the University of Akron represent about 59 percent of the faculty workforce, which is the highest rate among Ohio’s tax-supported universities.

As a former college instructor I would like to ask these folks: "Did you know about the non-benefits before YOU inked the contract? Or perhaps someone lied to you during your interview?" I suspect fhe former, and doubt the latter.
