COVID-19 Support Payments Explanation

Businesses in our state who have been compelled to place their employees on furlough (i.e., a temporary period of time during which an employee performs no personal services for the employer as a result of a layoff caused by the economic impacts of COVID‐19) may also receive unemployment insurance (UI) benefits. The Governor’s Executive Order clears the way for employers – who choose to take advantage of this voluntary option – to make these COVID‐19 Support Payments without such payments affecting their employees’ eligibility for UI benefits.
