Is there a form that I can fill out to expedite the employee's claim?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 35:55

 

If I lay off workers, am I liable for their health insurance or will they have to cover their own premiums?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 36:23 

 

As an essential business, we support global clients. If we have intermittent work that lasts for a few weeks due to COVID-19 related issues on our clients' side, how does that affect our employees' ability to file for unemployment and their ability to work when work becomes available?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 37:48

 

Is there a maximum length of time for a furlough? For instance, can you furlough for 2-3 months?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 38:41

 

We furloughed our part-time employees. We want to bring them back. Do I need to apply for unemployment for all of them?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 39:47

 

If I have an employee that is afraid to work for fear of contracting COVID-19, do I have to pay them?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 40:46

 

Will PUA and additional $600 be administered by state?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 43:18

 

Where can I get the form with the notice to employees who are leaving that they are entitled to unemployment?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 43:47

 

If I have already done a temporary furlough of employees and those employees have already filed their own unemployment claim.  Can that now be changed to an attached unemployment claim?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 44:15

 

An employee can be afraid to work if the employer is not following CDC guidance to keep employees safe.  That would be an OSHA complaint due to the General Duty clause. Is that correct?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 45:50

 

What happens if the employee handles the claim directly? (and the employer does not and cannot).  Does that affect the federal amount?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 47:22

 

Are we required to file an attached claim or is it best practice?

Hear Kenny Colbert's answer at 47:59
