BR-115841

BR-115841 (Dec. 17, 2010) — A majority of the Board held:  (1) The evidence of the claimant's disability at the hearing was sufficient under 430 CMR 9.09 to permit the claimant to enroll in fewer than twelve community college credits per semester while attending her training program under G.L. c. 151A, § 30(c); (2) The benefit year application and enrollment deadlines under the DUA regulations are not enforceable against this claimant, because a federal benefit year extension was in effect at the time the claimant applied for and began her training program.

BR-115740

BR-115740 (Nov. 17, 2010) — A majority of Board members held that the claimant may not be disqualified from receiving extended benefits by the rule under 430 CMR 9.06, on the ground that he applied for these training benefits after his benefit year expired.  G.L. c. 151A, § 30(c), as amended in July, 2009, requires the tolling of such application deadlines during a period when extended or emergency unemployment benefits are being funded in whole or in part by the federal government.

BR-115277

BR-115277 (Dec. 6, 2010) — A majority of the Board held that 430 CMR 9.04 may not disqualify this claimant from receiving extended benefits on the ground that she commenced her training program after her benefit year expired.  G.L. c. 151A, § 30(c), as amended in July, 2009, requires the tolling of such time limits during a period when extended or emergency unemployment benefits are being funded in whole or in part by the federal government.  [Note: District Court appeal withdrawn.]
