Policy Statement

Institute employees are covered under The Georgia Employee Security Act, known as unemployment compensation. This insurance program is designed to assist eligible employees who are temporarily unemployed through no fault of their own, are able and available for work, and are unsuccessful in finding work.


Employees are mailed a separation notice following termination. The notice should be used to apply for unemployment compensation if eligible for benefits. The notice will be issued by the Benefits Department. If further information is needed contact the Benefits Department at (404) 894-1417.
