Event Details

Join us on April 1st, 2020 from 12 pm to 1 pm as Tammy McBroom with the GA Department of Labor discusses the new unemployment laws and what it means for our business owners!  If you were not aware, the GA Department of Labor has adopted a new rule that went into effect March 16, 2020.  

The rule mandates all Georgia employers to file partial claims online on behalf of their employees for any week during which an employee (full-time/part-time) works less than full-time due to a partial or total company shutdown caused by the -19 public health emergency. Any employer found to be in violation of this rule will be required to reimburse GDOL for the full amount of unemployment insurance benefits paid to the employee. Download theHow Employers File Partial Claims Desk-Aid found on the GDOL Alert Page and follow the step-by-step instructions. 
 
Filing partial claims results in your employees receiving unemployment insurance (UI) benefit payments faster, usually within 48 hours for claims filed electronically. Employees for whom you file a partial claim are NOT required to report to a Georgia Department of Labor career center, register for employment services, or look for other work.
