61-6-23Benefits for individuals seeking only part-time work.

No individual may be denied regular benefits based on availability for work pursuant to subdivision 61-6-1(3), actively seeking work pursuant to rules promulgated pursuant to § 61-6-1, or refusal to accept work pursuant to § 61-6-16, solely because the individual is seeking only part-time work, if the department determines that a majority of the weeks of work in the individual's base period were for less than full-time work. For purposes of this section, seeking only part-time work, means seeking work that has comparable hours to the individual's part-time work experience in the individual's base period.
