Unemployment compensation; responsibility for benefit charges. Amends provisions in the Virginia's unemployment compensation laws designating the employer responsible for benefit charges. Under current law, the last employer that employed a benefits-eligible individual for 30 days or 240 hours will be assessed benefit charges relating to such individual's benefit claim. The bill increases the amount of employment required before responsibility attaches to 60 days or 480 hours. Amends § 60.2-528, § 60.2-614, § 60.2-618, § 60.2-619, of the Code of Virginia.
