Rafaela Alvarez

Is this presentation available after this session have ended?
Lara Smith

Does that mean you don’t have to report earnings of $300 or less?
Jennifer Sheetz
49:06

Grace Kim

Traci Bledsoe

If an employee was discharged pre-COVID for non-COVID related reason, will her unemployment benefits also be extended from 14 to 26 weeks?
Lara Smith
51:31
Partial reduction in hours started for us on March 12. Can we file all those weeks we’ve missed?
Lara Smith
52:22
What does it mean when you say not money you paid them but money they earned?
Tangee Allen
53:47
do we report that for full and part time employees
Lara Smith
53:49
Okay so we’re reporting what they were paid
Erin Parker
54:27
What about employees that aren’t salaried but cannot work their hours because of lack of work
Lara Smith
54:45
Are we reporting both what they would normally be paid and the amount they were actually paid? Or only one of those numbers?
Tangee Allen
54:56
do we report for full and part time employees. even if partime employees work hours very from week to week.
Jennifer Sheetz
55:36
will we be able to get payroll tax credits for the company paid benefits while they are on partial unemployment?
Chris Martin
56:17
We terminated an intern for lack of work last week before we knew about this change. She has already filed and been approved for UI. Is there a way to convert this to us filing to comply and not receive a penalty?
Grace Kim
56:37
and Employers are LEGALLY REQUIRED to claim these qualifying employees, correct? With a penalty for not filing them, correct?
Bill Schnitzer
56:47
What happens if we have part time employees who were scheduled to do certain tasks and we have offered other tasks during this crisis and they may not have accepted these tasks and they decided to apply for unemployment?
Sylvia Dennis-Wray
58:10
The question on the form was Did the employee earn at $7300 in your employ? Can you explain that question because I answered yes but they did not work that week? If I answered that question wrong then how do I correct it?
skye timil
58:33
We hired a contractor but could not move forward with the job b/c of covid. Will they qualify for unemployement being that contractors, freelances, etc.. are being covered under the CARES Act.
Robi Mobley
58:54
What if the employee starts a claim prior to the company filing the claim for them? What does the employer do at that point?
Debbie White
59:05
We currently employ part time clinicians. They set their own schedules and hours.
Traci Bledsoe
59:19
If an employee is furloughed but is being paid full salary through PTO and sick time, do we still file a claim on his behalf?
Chris Martin
59:30
I am having trouble reaching the DOL to get a password reset. They don't respond to emails or phone messages. Do you have any alternate contact info?
Mack Headrick
01:00:10
Is it retroactive a few weeks or can we only start now?
Tiffany Hughes
01:00:30
What do we do it we pay unemployment into a trust and a third party company handles unemployment on our behalf? We are now filing partial claims, but still getting claims from our third party provider.
Alison McElvery
01:01:27
Can you give us an example of what a 40K ($796.00 per week) worker would earn?
Debbie White
01:01:32
What if we have a part time employee who filed before we could file for them ?
Grace Kim
01:01:50
What is the role of contracted employees (not independent contractors or 1099) in communicating with the Employer?
Bill Schnitzer
01:02:44
What if we have not reduced hours and a part time employee has decided to file for unemployment?
Ming Richardson
01:03:29
I think earlier it mentioned a volunteered unemployment or self quarantine are not eligible
Lara Smith
01:04:19
Can we apply for the previous multiple weeks now to get caught up?
Rebecca Smith
01:04:26
I thought that I read that the EE did not have to notify the State under the Cares Act
Tangee Allen
01:05:53
Do we need to report part time staffers who have another job but are furloughed with us a consequence of COVID?
Tiffany Hughes
01:06:12
If we layoff seasonal employees who have other jobs should we still file partial claims for them?
Colleen Bozard
01:07:19
Where does PIN come from?
bivi Franco
01:08:06
if I hired someone just 6 weeks ago to work part-time and now I have to reduce hours are they still eligible for a claim?
Erin Parker
01:08:50
Can we go back and make claims from previous weeks?
Lara Smith
01:08:54
We started reducing hours on March 12, but haven’t applied yet. Can we make multiple weeks of claims to catch-up and then get into a rhythm after that?
Bill Schnitzer
01:09:04
We have an employee who works 32 hours per week and is earning over $40K per year. Is the most they can earn on UI $365 per week?
Traci Bledsoe
01:09:11
so for partial claims, the employee does NOT go to DOL office, correct? they do everything online.
Tangee Allen
01:09:15
Do we need to report/file on behalf of part time staffers who have another job but are furloughed with us a consequence of COVID?
Lara Smith
01:09:58
So then we would do one for each week we missed or one umbrella one?
Lara Smith
01:12:52
Will you talk about how employers will access these enhanced benefits?
Lara Smith
01:12:58
Sorry, employees
Allison Barnett
01:13:07
Are employees who have hours reduced more than 25% eligible for CARES act benefits?
Tiffany Hughes
01:13:43
What do we do it we pay unemployment into a trust and a third party company handles unemployment on our behalf? We are now filing partial claims, but still getting claims from our third party provider.
Andrea Shapland
01:14:16
does this apply to people in a household who can’t workcan’t work because they are quarantining the whole house due to some members being in high risk
Michelle Long
01:14:23
I’m still not clear on contractors unemployment options under CARES. Can you please explain further?
Lara Smith
01:14:23
How do our employees find their PIN numbers
Tangee Allen
01:14:27
Do we need to report part time staffers who have another full time job but are furloughed with us a consequence of COVID? Are they eligible for partial?
Bill Schnitzer
01:14:31
Do I understand correctly that the most and employee who is furloughed can collect is $365 per week?
Sherri Howard
01:14:49
So the CARES act applies to employees needing full unemployment? (as compared to partial unemployment benefits)
Diane Holley
01:15:29
What happens if an employee quits because they are afraid of contacting the virus?
Luella Rhodes
01:17:03
If an employee has tested and the results are “insuffient”, is housebound and their coworkers are now housebound for 14 days which would apply to the employee and the co-workers?
Tiffany Hughes
01:17:08
If we have laid off temporary/seasonal workers and they have other jobs do we still file partial claims on their behalf?
Mitzy Sharp Futro
01:17:24
If we don't currently have an account (because we have fewer than 4 employees), would you recommend we establish an account "just in case" one of our 1099 contractors needs to file under the CARES Act?
Sue Scalf
01:17:27
What are the thoughts an employer should go through when analyzing a PPP loan vs. unemployment benefits?
Lara Smith
01:18:18
What was that base amount?
Jennifer Sheetz
01:18:24
so under the Cares act (not partial unemployment) who files? Employer or employee?
Traci Bledsoe
01:19:36
is $7300 for the entire time that the employee is employed or for a limited period?
Susan Butts
01:19:58
Based on DOL Rule 300-2-9-.06, item #5: Can a furloughed employee whose home department is closed refuse work that is available in another department and still be eligible for partial unemployment? Item #5 suggests that if they meet certain criteria (e.g. are quarantined, 60 years or over, with a condition making them susceptible to COVID 19, who is a caregiver of person 60 or over or someone who is susceptible to COVID 19 or who is parent to minor whose school is closed).
Andrea Shapland
01:20:20
does Cares act apply to people who can’t work because they are in a household quarantining the whole house due to some members being in high risk “medically fragile”
Tangee Allen
01:20:21
Do we need to report/file on behalf of part time staffers who have another full time job but are furloughed with us as a part time employee as a consequence of COVID?
Allen Brenner
01:23:50
Are there different liabilities with furlough vs layoff and what is the liability to a 501(c)3 who has not paid into unemployment with a staff size of 3?
Allison Barnett
01:24:13
Am I correct that employees who have hours cut by more than 25% are eligible for GA and CARES unemployment benefits
Lara Smith
01:25:05
I’m still not clear on what all we are reporting. Do I report both what they would have been paid had we not been in COVID19 and what they were actually paid? Is that correct?
Jennifer Sheetz
01:26:33
if someone can’t come to work because of cover childcare issues does the employee file or does the employer file?
Lara Smith
01:26:37
So we are only reporting what we actually paid them?
bivi Franco
01:27:09
what if the person is been working with us just for 6 weeks ? and now we have to cut hours
Andrea Shapland
01:27:34
does Cares act apply to people who can’t work because they are in a household quarantining the whole house due to some members being in high risk “medically fragile”
Bill Schnitzer
01:27:36
Is the maximum amount a furloughed employee will be paid is $365.
Allen Brenner
01:28:14
Are there different liabilities with furlough vs layoff and what is the liability to a 501(c)3 who has not paid into unemployment with a staff size of 3?
Claudia Cano
01:28:43
What are the thoughts an employer should go through when analyzing a PPP loan vs. unemployment benefits?
Matt Pieper
01:28:49
Since the employer is required to file partial claims for employees that are working reduced hours due to COVID, IF the employer decided to make up the difference the employee would have earned before reduced hours, does that negate the Employer requirement to file a partial Unemployment Insurance claim for these employees?
Sue Scalf
01:29:13
Can you address PPP loan option versus furlough/layoff and unemployment route?
Tiffany Hughes
01:29:19
How would we know that?
bivi Franco
01:29:35
what is the link to apply for
Allison Barnett
01:31:08
I believe you said if they enter into the contract, employees MAY also be eligible for CARE benefits. What would the criteria be to determine eligibility for CARE?
Sherri Howard
01:31:55
We have a reimbursable account with DOL, and have paid a sizable deposit into our DOL account for unemployment benefits. If an employee receives unemployment benefits, is the government covering the expense or will it be charged against our DOL account, in which case we may end up paying for the amounts paid out that exceed the amount we have on deposit.
Lara Smith
01:34:23
Can employees opt to not get unemployment benefits, if they choose to?
Lara Smith
01:35:10
How would they opt out?
Rita Williams
01:35:19
WE offered an employee half-time executive pay, but she refused to focus on her family and her health. We will re-visit employment in July. Furloughed and do we need to file umeployement though she DOES earn $$ elsewhere or through her business. What are the implications?
Lara Smith
01:35:54
Can they opt out once I’ve made the application?
David Wood
01:36:15
We are a non-covered relgiious organization. We have wondered if we can opt in to get coverage should we have to lay people off or reduce hours?
David Wood
01:37:38
We are a non-covered relgiious organization. We have wondered if we can opt in to get coverage should we have to lay people off or reduce hours?
Allen Brenner
01:37:42
If an employee holds both full-time and part-time employment (two different employers) and is furloughed by the part-time employer, are they eligible for unemployment benefits for the part-time position?
Rebecca Thurman
01:37:45
How do we get access to these slides?
Bob Cuellar
01:38:16
Since the employer is required to file partial claims for employees that are working reduced hours due to COVID, IF the employer decided to make up the difference the employee would have earned before reduced hours, does that negate the Employer requirement to file a partial Unemployment Insurance claim for these employees?
Jennifer Sheetz

Virginia Thompson
