    When an employee files a claim, the intake worker does not even ask if they were exempt or non-exempt.

    Thanks. I kept getting different responses as to whether or not exempt would be able to get unemployment the second shut down and needed to make sure.

    I'm in the OP's state. We don't.

    Agreed. "Exempt" and "non-exempt" are legal concepts defined in the federal FLSA law, mostly for purposes of overtime. To my knowledge no state has any rules that looks at this for purposes of UI claims. Still, there are a lot of very strange state rules out there, so I guess anything is possible.

    Yes, of course they would. They didn't work.

    Why would non-exempt employees be able to claim the three days and not exempt employees?

    Exempt Unemployment Massachusetts

    Hello. My company is thinking of having 2 facility shut downs. Both weeks would be during holiday weeks, the first week has 1 paid holiday and the second has 2 paid holidays.

    My understanding for Massachusetts is that no one the first week would be able to collect unemployment (waiting period). For the second shut down non-exempt employees would be able to collect for the 3 days with 2 days paid holiday.

    Question- can exempt employees collect unemployment for the second shutdown? They will not be working that week, but will get 2 paid holidays.

    Thanks in advance for the assistance.
