The base period is the four quarters of earnings that are used to determine how much unemployment you qualify for.
Idaho Department of Labor uses a regular base period of the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters. If you do not qualify using the regular base period, you may qualify using the alternate base period of the last four completed calendar quarters.
