Unemployment Compensation

City of Somerville FY21 Budget

In Chapter 720 of the Acts of 1977, the Massachusetts Legislature extended unemployment compensation to eligible state and local government employees. The City provides a reimbursement method of payment to the Department of Labor and Workforce Development. This allotment also provides funds for disability insurance for non-union employees who suffer long-term, disabling injuries or illnesses as well as certain other contractually required coverage.
