Eligibility - remunerative work (general): Work normally done (Info)

Count work done only if

  • it’s work the customer normally does


  • it’s likely to last for a period of four weeks or more (beginning with the week of claim).

The word ‘normally’ should be given its ordinary everyday meaning of ‘regularly, usually, typically’. It doesn’t mean anything that’s abnormal or exceptional.
