As the Coronavirus public health crisis continues to impact individuals and economies across the globe, there are evolving workforce management questions and changes to navigate at both the local and federal levels.

It is important that employers understand the Unemployment Compensation Program and Claims Process During COVID-19 and the legislative changes made to employment protections and emergency leave to address employees impacted by the Coronavirus.
