ONLINE FORM: COVID-19 Inquiries for Local Businesses
The Chamber is proud to be partnering with the City of Lakeville to assist local businesses with your COVID-19 questions.

Lakeville’s business community is vibrant and diversified, but even our strongest shops, restaurants, professional offices and industrial employers are feeling stressed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know that navigating the numerous state and federal programs can be daunting, so the City of Lakeville is offering a resource to help point businesses in the right direction.
If you are a Lakeville-based business and have questions about where to look, who to talk to, or just have general questions,  complete this online form  and we will help you find the resources you need.

Please note that we are not experts in different areas of commerce, so we will not be able to provide business-specific advice.

We know that many of DEED's partners are receiving questions related to unemployment insurance in this unprecedented time.

This week's updates:

Meeting the new demand 
To meet the new demand DEED has taken new steps to help streamline its response to the most common eligibility issues in order to help process application and get payments to applicants more quickly. 
  • We are no longer required to delay benefits for people who are taking vacation, sick pay or personal time off when they apply for unemployment insurance. 
  • This change will also free up many of our staff to help assist other Minnesotans who are navigating this process and ensure more people get benefits as quickly as possible. 
  • This change is authorized under Executive Order 20-29 signed by the Governor, and will help ensure we are able to immediately get benefits to the folks who need it most right now. 

Call lines are open for all applicants 
Call lines are now open for general questions Monday – Thursday between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Customers needing help with their applications can call Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. There will likely still be long wait times on the phone so direct them to uimn.org whenever possible. 

There are additional resources available for other languages 

We don't have all the answers on the CARE Act implementation yet
We are still waiting for guidance from the Federal Government on implementation of these additional benefits. What we do know can be found online at:  https://www.uimn.org/applicants/needtoknow/news-updates/cares-act.jsp

Additional things to remember 
The UI website - uimn.org - is still the best place for resources and answers to the most common questions. Many questions from UI applicants have been answered on the website , as well. More information is also available on the  UI applicants need to know page.
