Whether G. L. c. 151A, § 25(e)(1), which requires an individual who is disqualified from receiving unemployment benefits to have at least eight weeks of qualifying work in order to re-qualify for benefits, applies where the individual was contemporaneously employed in both a full-time and a part-time job; whether an individual who voluntarily leaves a full-time job and is subsequently laid off from a part-time job may qualify to receive unemployment benefits based on the part-time employment.
Interested parties may file their briefs in the Office of the Clerk for the Commonwealth, John Adams Courthouse, Suite 1-400, Pemberton Square, Boston MA 02108-1724 (Telephone 617-557-1020).

Amicus briefs, to assist the court, should focus on the ramifications of a decision and not solely on the interests of the parties filing such briefs.
