DOL Repeals Birth and Adoption Regs
The Department of Labor has issued a final rule to remove Birth and Adoption Unemployment Compensation (BAA-UC) regulations, which allowed states to use their unemployment insurance trust funds to pay workers taking leave for the birth or adoption of a child.

The rule is effective November 10, 2003. The department says no states have elected to implement programs under BAA-UC. Therefore, no one would lose benefits under the repeal.

One reason for the repeal is that the financial conditions of state unemployment funds have deteriorated since the initial rules were issued in 2000, according to the department. The department also cited legal issues concerning unemployment compensation (UC) requirements.

The DOL said that BAA-UC was counter to the UC program's goal of getting people back to work because "it encourages parents to refuse available work."


The department published the final rule in the October 9,2003 Federal Register.
