(1)(a) Notwithstanding ORS 657.010 (Definitions) (1), in the case of an individual who is not eligible for benefits under ORS 657.150 (Amount of benefits) (2) using the definition in ORS 657.010 (Definitions) (1), “base year” means the last four completed calendar quarters preceding the benefit year, if use of this alternate definition of “base year” makes the individual eligible for benefits under ORS 657.150 (Amount of benefits) (2).
(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this subsection, a determination of eligibility under ORS 657.150 (Amount of benefits) (2) may not be made using paragraph (a) of this subsection if the individual qualifies or would qualify for regular benefits under the unemployment law of another governmental jurisdiction using that jurisdiction’s standard base year.
(c) Work and earnings in a calendar quarter that is included in a claim determined to be eligible using the base year as defined in paragraph (a) of this subsection cannot be included in the base year of a subsequent claim unless the subsequent claim’s base year is extended under ORS 657.170 (Extending base year) to include the calendar quarter.
(2)(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this subsection, the definition of “base year” that applies for the purposes of determining an individual’s eligibility for benefits under ORS 657.150 (Amount of benefits) applies for all purposes under this chapter related to that individual’s claim.
(3) The Director of the Employment Department shall adopt rules necessary to carry out the provisions of this section. [2009 c.71 §2; 2013 c.101 §1]
