My understanding is that top executives are eligible for unemployment benefits even after they've received a huge severance package. It feels unfair that when our company essentially paid our previous executive director what amounted to 6 months pay in a lump sum that he/she was eligible for unemployment benefits right away. So our company was then penalized with higher unemployment rates even though we paid out a package generous enough to allow time to find another job. We also paid for an employment councelor for this individual. P.S. In reality this individual did find a another job within 6 months but also collected unemployment benefits during that time.
