If you, like many employers, had to lay off your employees because of the COVID pandemic and they filed unemployment claims for the weeks after May 16, 2020, you might be eligible for relief of your unemployment benefit charging. You can find all of the information on the Department of Workforce Development website.
You can also now report individuals who refused to return to work.
And please don’t forget that you need to provide your employees with information on the availability of unemployment insurance. You can post it where everyone has access to it, you can email it, you can snail mail it, whatever works best for your business. You also need to provide it to them again upon separation. Providing the information does not mean that they are automatically eligible for unemployment.
If you need a refresher on all of this, I talked about it at the beginning of November. I am also here if you need assistance communicating this to your employees. Happy to help! Send me a message about this or anything else I can assist you with.
