Do we have to do this per week or per our internal pay periods? we pay twice per month. we don't have a weekly pay schedule
goodsons
02:03:14
Referencing this mandate, is there a max/min employee count on which companies are required to do this? Businesses with 500 or less or 500 or more?

After the employer completes the partial UI, do the employees need to file as well?
iPhone
02:04:37
what if employee voluntarily does not want to work but you are offering hours, do you file on their behalf too?
Sue Plaksin
02:04:50
Does the GA DOL rule apply to those employees who are on furlough or LWOP?
Sue Plaksin
02:05:14
They will be coming back after we open to the public.
Laura
02:05:14
If employees hours are reduced, what percentage of hour reduction must they undergo to have balance of hours covered by UI.
David

Are there still exceptions to the sick leave requirement?
daniellebenson
02:08:21
This morning the International Franchise Association webinar they said that this does not apply to employers with less than 50 employees - can you verify?
Carol
02:10:29
And where does the $ come from to pay for persons who are getting this 80 hours of paid sick leave?
Laura
02:13:29
If employee is furloughed due to lack of work after April 1 - are they still eligible for FFCRA benefits?
mboyce
02:14:27
If an employee has already used their FMLA or is currently using FMLA, are they entitled to an additional 12 weeks?

Definitely interested in getting the updates!
jsailers

The GDOL website keeps crashing when we are trying to get our employees set up. Any suggestions?
daniellebenson
02:16:57
If you did the layoff on 3/18, does Families First apply? (How far backward does it look?)
mboyce
02:16:57
Speaking of paper trail, Is there forms already generated for us to use for the new E-PSL or E-FMAL? If so, where do we find them?
Michele - Visiting A

thanks for answering
Owner
02:20:01
So the 2 week FMLA leave - I'm confused as to how employers are required to file for unemployment for employees, but also pay 2 weeks through FMLA.?
A.L.
02:21:05
no pay period was regarding UI
Cheryl Legette
02:21:07
do you know how this relates to Surety Bonds?
Laura
02:22:10
What desginates a shut down? Our professional association for our business suggested we limit to emergenices only.
A.L.
02:22:23
do we have to file FMLA or pay this as well as UI?
Sue Plaksin
02:26:36
Unemployment
A.L.
02:28:18
OK so it is either or, not both.... if we are closed temporarily for 30 days due to CV19 then we file unemployment since we will open again in 30 days?
Thom - Visiting Ange
02:28:56
Who would suggest we speak to FIRST regarding the SBA loans that have been included in the relief package signed into law?
daniellebenson
02:31:02
Should we poll staff to ask them to self-identify of they qualify for Families First Act paid leave?
lkatz
02:32:45
Does the partial UI or full UI due to Covid-19 impact your modifier
Samuel Wilson
02:33:10
Thom, email me at swilson3@amfam.com … a banker friend sent me some info for several of my businessowner clients. I'll email you SBA contact that answers your question.
Judy
02:34:01
Can we get what Thom is getting or Thom can you forward the SBA info please?
Mindy
02:34:03
I also have the question as to how this affects a non-profit business. Where would I be able to find this info?
JOMA
02:34:31
Contact you local bank for forms. Most have them.
iPhone
02:34:47
when filing a claim it asks if the employee earned wages during that week. will it base the partial unemployment based on prior payroll tax records? how do they know what to pay employees??
Leigha
02:35:07
So, what happens if we furlough or layoff before April 1? This act does not apply to us?
Laura
02:36:09
EXAMPLE: So if I have 10 employees I plan on furloughing after April 1 - does that mean any of those 3 who meet the FFCRA (child at home) criterea get FFCRA and the rest are fuloughed?>
Charles E. Edwards
02:38:52
If you file for partial unemployment for an employee do you need to file for them every week
A.L.
02:39:02
the GADOL notice we received said we had to wait till our pay period ended... we could not start the UI filing until our period ended. is this correct ?
mboyce
02:39:02
If we cut out overtime, that does not qualify as a reduction in hours and would not require us to file the UI?
Mindy
02:40:54
Thanks, David!
Mike Leggett
02:40:55
Are there any changes in eligibility requirements for UI? Specifically length of employment.
Carol
02:41:23
As long as employer has posted the DOL poster on EFMLA, then has employer done what is required versus "asking" employees if they are in one of the categories under EFMLA?
Toni Floyd
02:41:42
I understand there are exceptions for businesses under 50 employees where participation is not required. What are those exceptions and how are they measured so we know if we are in this category?
Rachel Swartz
02:43:41
Can we submitt for umemployment for our employees for last week (prior to april 1st), then so ESL or EFMLA
lm
02:44:27
If we have reduced hours, but many of the employees still make over the maximum unemployment of $365 a week, do we still file the partial claim for them or do we only file for employees who's pay has been cut and they fall below the maximum amount?
Sue Plaksin
02:47:03
My understanding is that if our building is closed to the public but our entire staff is teleworking, we are to electronically notifiy staff of this new poster
Sue Plaksin
02:47:59
Is that correct?

clairecampbell

Hi. It is still unclear whether it would be better to file for UI benefits or to apply for a loan to pay our employees and get loan forgiveness.
Lindsay Brannen
02:51:30
Thanks everyone for attending.
Penny
