Our Law firm, Willig, Williams and Davidson (“WWD”), has put together an extensive 8-page memo outlining important updates and changes to UC and WC that have occurred during the COVID-19 crisis. In an effort to help break down these changes, they have also created summaries and bullet points for both UC and WC, including a sample letter on how to provide notice to your employer if you believe you are exposed to COVID-19 at your workplace.
This summary highlights the changes that have been made to UC during the COVID-19 crisis. Including information about enhanced payments, waiving the first week waiting period, waiving the stipulations that relate to being able to work as well as searching for work while receiving benefits and more.
