0019 3095 07 (Nov. 30, 2016) – Because the employer did not proffer any offer for the next academic year until mid-July, G.L. c. 151A, § 28A may not disqualify the claimant from receiving benefits until that point.  The claimant then declined the offer.  DUA treats rejecting an offer of employment as a separation for purposes of eligibility for benefits.  Therefore, § 28A does not render the claimant ineligible for the rest of the summer.  DUA will adjudicate whether the claimant remained in unemployment after mid-July under a different section of law.
