NJ DOL UPDATES GUIDANCE ON UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS

I have been asked more questions about unemployment benefits in the past month than in my entire time career as an employment attorney.  That's partly because so many more people are out of work than ever before but also because the state and federal government have significantly expanded access to unemployment benefits to cover more out of work scenarios, cover individuals not previously covered and increase the amount of benefits people can receive. With all these changes it's no wonder people are confused. But the NJ DOL has just gone a long way to eliminate confusion with its new guidance: NJ WORKERS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCY. Click here to get the new guidance.
