COVID-19 Information for employers
Last updated: 12/15/2020 at 5:00 p.m.
If your employee applies for unemployment benefits as a result of COVID-19:
- We will gather information from them during their application process to determine if the separation is COVID-19 related.
- Please do not submit an appeal or raise an issue to request relief of charges due to COVID-19. We will review your account automatically in the coming months. We will let you know if we need more information from you.
- Complete any Request for Information questions you receive in a timely manner.
- You may occasionally receive a notice or other document for an applicant receiving benefits due to COVID-19 that states your account will be charged for unemployment benefits paid. You do not need to do anything. We will remove the charges.
For any matter not related to COVID-19, continue to respond to Requests for information, “raise an issue” and appeal determinations for those issues.
