Is COVID-19 affecting your job status? Considering applying for unemployment.

You may be eligible for unemployment compensation if:

  1. Your employer temporarily closes or goes out of business because of COVID-19.
  2. Your employer reduces your hours because of COVID-19.
  3. You have been told not to work because your employer feels you might get or spread COVID-19.
  4. You have been told to quarantine or self-isolate, or live/work in a county under government-recommended mitigation efforts.

It’s important to note that:

  • The waiting week has been suspended and those eligible may receive benefits for the first week they are unemployed.
  • Claimants are not required to prove they have applied or searched for a new job to maintain their Unemployment Compensation benefits.
