2364423-644. Reciprocal arrangements
A. The department may enter into reciprocal arrangements with appropriate and duly authorized agencies of other states or of the federal government, or both, whereby:
1. Services performed by an individual for a single employing unit for which services are customarily performed in more than one state shall be deemed services performed entirely within any one of the states in which any part of the individual's service is performed, or in which the individual has his residence, or in which the employing unit maintains a place of business, provided there is in effect, as to such services, an election, approved by the agency charged with the administration of the state's unemployment compensation law, pursuant to which all services performed by the individual for such employing unit are deemed to be performed entirely within such state.
2. Potential rights to benefits accumulated under the unemployment compensation laws of one or more states or under one or more such laws of the federal government, or both, may constitute the basis for the payment of benefits through a single appropriate agency upon terms which the department finds will be fair and reasonable as to all affected interests and will not result in any substantial loss to the fund.
3. The department shall participate in any arrangements for the payment of benefits on the basis of combining an individual's wages and employment covered under this chapter with his wages and employment covered under the unemployment compensation laws of other states which are approved by the United States secretary of labor in consultation with the state unemployment compensation agencies as reasonably calculated to assure the prompt and full payment of benefits in such situations and which include provisions for applying the base period of a single state law to a claim involving the combining of an individual's wages and employment covered under two or more state unemployment compensation laws, and avoiding the duplicate use of wages and employment by reason of such combining.
4. Contributions due under this chapter with respect to wages for insured work shall for the purposes of collection of contributions be deemed to have been paid to the fund as of the date payment was made as contributions therefor under another state or federal unemployment compensation law, but no such arrangement shall be entered into unless it contains provisions for reimbursement to the fund of such contributions and the actual earnings thereon as the department finds will be fair and reasonable as to all affected interests.
B. Reimbursements paid from the fund pursuant to paragraph 3 of subsection A of this section shall be deemed benefits for the purpose of sections 23 701 through 23 704 and sections 23 779, 23 780 and 23 782. The department may make to other state or federal agencies and receive from other state or federal agencies, reimbursements from or to the fund in accordance with arrangements entered into pursuant to subsection A of this section.
C. Since the administration of this chapter and of other state and federal unemployment compensation and public employment service laws will be promoted by cooperation between this state and such other states and the appropriate federal agencies in exchanging services, and making available facilities and information, the department may make such investigations, secure and transmit such information, make available such services and facilities and exercise such of the other powers provided in this chapter with respect to the administration of this chapter as it deems necessary or appropriate to facilitate the administration of any such unemployment compensation or public employment service law, and in like manner, may accept and utilize information, services and facilities made available to this state by the agency charged with the administration of any such other unemployment compensation or public employment service law.
D. To the extent permissible under the laws and constitution of the United States, the department may enter into or cooperate in arrangements whereby facilities and services provided under this chapter and facilities and services provided under the unemployment compensation law of a foreign government may be utilized for the taking of claims and the payment of benefits under the employment security law of this state or under a similar law of such government. 23644
