AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to the calculation of  weekly
  employment  insurance  benefits  for  workers  who are partially unem-

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Section 522 of the labor law, as amended by chapter 720 of
the laws of 1953, is amended to read as follows:
  S 522. Total unemployment AND PARTIAL UNEMPLOYMENT.  "Total  unemploy-
ment"  means  the  total  lack of any employment [on any day] DURING ANY
WEEK. "PARTIAL EMPLOYMENT" MEANS ANY EMPLOYMENT DURING ANY WEEK THAT  IS
LESS  THAN FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT SO LONG AS THE COMPENSATION PAID IS LESS
THAN THE CLAIMANT'S WEEKLY BENEFIT  RATE  PLUS  THE  CLAIMANT'S  PARTIAL
BENEFIT  CREDIT. The term "employment" as used in this section means any
employment including that not defined in this title.
  S 2. Section 523 of the labor law is REPEALED and a new section 523 is
added to read as follows:
  S 523. EFFECTIVE WEEK. "EFFECTIVE WEEK" MEANS (A) A WEEK DURING  WHICH
A  CLAIMANT  PERFORMS NO SERVICES FOR WHICH THE CLAIMANT IS PAID COMPEN-
SATION, OR (B) A WEEK DURING WHICH A CLAIMANT  PERFORMS  SERVICES  ON  A
PART-TIME BASIS FOR WHICH THE CLAIMANT IS PAID COMPENSATION THAT IS LESS
THAN  THE CLAIMANT'S WEEKLY BENEFIT RATE PLUS HIS OR HER PARTIAL BENEFIT
CREDIT.
  S 3. The labor law is amended by adding a new section 525 to  read  as
follows:
  S  525.  PARTIAL  BENEFIT  CREDIT. "PARTIAL BENEFIT CREDIT" MEANS THAT
PART OF THE COMPENSATION, IF ANY, PAID TO A CLAIMANT WITH RESPECT  TO  A
WEEK  FOR  WHICH  BENEFITS  ARE CLAIMED UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THIS LAW
WHICH IS NOT IN EXCESS OF FIFTY PER CENTUM OF  THE  INDIVIDUAL'S  WEEKLY
BENEFIT  RATE,  OR  ONE  HUNDRED DOLLARS, WHICHEVER IS THE GREATER. SUCH
PARTIAL BENEFIT CREDIT, IF NOT  A  MULTIPLE  OF  ONE  DOLLAR,  SHALL  BE
COMPUTED TO THE NEXT HIGHER MULTIPLE OF ONE DOLLAR.
