WORKER’S COMPENSATION AND RELATED LAWS — INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION
EMPLOYMENT SECURITY LAW
72-1302. Declaration of state public policy. The public policy of this state is as follows: Economic insecurity due to unemployment is a serious threat to the well-being of our people. Unemployment is a subject of national and state concern. This chapter addresses this problem by encouraging employers to offer stable employment and by systematically accumulating funds during periods of employment to pay benefits for periods of unemployment. The legislature declares that the general welfare of our citizens requires the enactment of this measure and sets aside unemployment reserves to be used for workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own.
