FEDERAL UPDATES – EMERGENCY UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE STABILIZATION AND ACCESS ACT OF 2020
Unemployment laws in each state vary with respect to waiting periods, qualifications and payments. The Act provides each state with additional funds to address the increase in the number of workers who will be filing due to this emergency. In order to receive additional funding from the Federal Government to support the overwhelming impact of COVID-19, states must ease eligibility requirements and access to UE compensation for claimants including:
- Waiving work search requirements
- Waiving waiting period
- Not holding employers chargeable for these claims.
Several states have already made changes to their requirements and benefits. See below for resources at each state.
