NY Work Comp L § 203 (2012) What's This?
 
    § 203. Employees eligible for benefits under section two hundred four.
  Employees  in  employment  of  a  covered  employer  for  four  or  more
  consecutive weeks and employees in employment  during  the  work  period
  usual to and available during such four or more consecutive weeks in any
  trade  or  business  in  which  they are regularly employed and in which
  hiring from day to  day  of  such  employees  is  the  usual  employment
  practice  shall  be  eligible  for  disability  benefits  as provided in
  section two hundred four.   Every such employee  shall  continue  to  be
  eligible  during  such  employment  and for a period of four weeks after
  such employment terminates regardless of whether the  employee  performs
  any work for remuneration or profit in non-covered employment. If during
  such four week period the employee performs any work for remuneration or
  profit  for  another covered employer the employee shall become eligible
  for benefits immediately with respect to that  employment.  In  addition
  every  such employee who returns to work with the same employer after an
  agreed and specified unpaid leave of absence  or  vacation  without  pay
  shall  become  eligible  for  benefits  immediately with respect to such
  employment. An employee who during a  period  in  which  he  or  she  is
  eligible  to  receive  benefits  under  subdivision  two  of section two
  hundred seven returns to employment  with  a  covered  employer  and  an
  employee  who  is currently receiving unemployment insurance benefits or
  benefits under section two hundred seven and who returns  to  employment
  with  a  covered employer shall become eligible for benefits immediately
  with  respect  to  such  employment.    An  employee  regularly  in  the
  employment  of  a  single  employer  on  a  work  schedule less than the
  employer's normal work week shall become eligible for  benefits  on  the
  twenty-fifth  day  of  such  regular employment. An employee who becomes
  disabled while eligible for benefits in  the  employment  of  a  covered
  employer  shall not be deemed, for the purposes of this article, to have
  such employment terminated during any period he or she  is  eligible  to
  receive  benefits  under  section  two hundred four with respect to such
  employment.
