  The University of Kentucky is obligated by law to fund the unemployment compensation of any eligible former staff employee. To determine specifically when the University is liable for funding these benefits, it is imperative that as much factual information as the department has available about a separated staff employee be forwarded on a timely basis. In order for the University to respond properly to an unemployment claim within imposed time limits, these records must be readily available for verification of the University’s potential liability.
