What are the factors in determining reasonable assurance?

The Department of Labor will consider several things when determining if reasonable assurance exists. These may include:

  • The past employer/employee relationship
  • An established understanding that the employee will return to work
  • If the employee has placed his/her name on a list of available workers
  • Whether the employee has reason to believe he/she will not be called back
