  • rules

(1) An individual is deemed unemployed in any week during which the individual performs no services and with respect to which no remuneration for services performed is paid or payable to the individual, or in any week of less than full-time work if the remuneration paid or payable to the individual for services performed during the week is less than the individuals weekly benefit amount.

(2) For the purposes of ORS 657.155 (Benefit eligibility conditions) (1), an individual who performs full-time services in any week for an employing unit is not unemployed even though remuneration is neither paid nor payable to the individual for the services performed; however, nothing in this subsection shall prevent an individual from meeting the definition of unemployed as used in this section solely by reason of the individuals performance of volunteer services without remuneration for a charitable institution or a governmental entity.

(3) The Director of the Employment Department shall prescribe rules as the director deems necessary with respect to the various types of unemployment. [Amended by 1981 c.77 §3]
