In North Carolina, when the Department of Employment Services (sorry, Division of Employment Security) decides that a worker can receive unemployment benefits, here is how they say that:
They could say “earned.”
They could say “given.”
They could even just say “The claimant is qualified.”
But instead they say that the claimant is “not disqualified.” This blows me away.
This language gives you a view into exactly what the purpose of their process is—they are there to find a way to disqualify. This is their intention.
