Bonuses.

(1) If a bonus is attributable to work you performed during a week in which you claimed benefits, the amount paid is deductible from benefits.
Example: You work twenty hours a week and receive partial unemployment benefits. Based on productivity for that week, your employer awards a fifty dollar cash bonus to workers. The fifty dollars is deductible from benefits.
(2) If a bonus is not attributable to work you performed during a week claimed, it is not deductible from benefits.
Example: You work eight months for an employer and are then laid off. At the end of the year, your employer pays each worker a bonus of one hundred dollars for each month worked during the calendar year. You receive eight hundred dollars based on your eight months of work. Because the bonus is attributable to work performed before you separated from your job, it is not deductible from benefits.
(3) A bonus includes, but is not limited to, cash payments and other things of value that are over and above the employment contract or hiring agreement.
