(820 ILCS 65/20)
    Sec. 20. Extension of layoff period. A layoff of more than 6 months which, at its outset, was announced to be a layoff of 6 months or less shall be treated as an employment loss under this Act unless:
        (1) the extension beyond 6 months is caused by
business circumstances (including unforeseeable changes in price or cost) not reasonably foreseeable at the time of the initial layoff; and
        (2) notice is given at the time it becomes reasonably
foreseeable that the extension beyond 6 months will be required.
