Under the law, an employee who works for an organization that has contracted with a secondary school to provide services that the school could have performed by its employees is not entitled to collect unemployment benefits between academic years, if the employee has a reasonable assurance of employment in the following academic year.

Lewis provided services to students at the Como High School location. Can Lewis collect unemployment benefits for the time between academic years? The Unemployment Law Judge Bryan Eng found Lewis ineligible for unemployment benefits for the period between academic terms.
