How long does an employee have to be employed with a company in Illinois before he or she is eligible for unemployment benefits?
Generally an employee must have worked for at least 13 weeks in the past 2 quarters to collect unemployment in Illinois. The 13 weeks need not all have been for the same employer.Usually the most recent employer is the one who is “chargeable” for the Illinois unemployment claim, as long as the employee worked there for more than 4 weeks.
Unemployment rules are complex, and there are many exceptions.
