Kentucky Defines a Week of Unemployment

Although Kentucky’s unemployment insurance statute authorizes the Education and Labor Cabinet to prescribe by administrative regulation the period of time that constitutes a week of unemployment for the purpose of administering the state’s Unemployment Insurance Program, the state legislature has adopted a rule stating that a week of unemployment (in certain circumstances) must be considered a calendar week of seven consecutive calendar days beginning 12:01 a.m. on Sunday and ending 12 midnight the following Saturday. Additionally, a week of unemployment beginning in a benefit year must be deemed to be wholly in that benefit year.
