Are you losing your job (or losing hours) as a result of the current pandemic? Is someone in your household unemployed or underemployed? In many cases, you may be eligible for benefits of which you're unaware. Unemployment benefits have been significantly expanded as a result of the CARES Act and other recent laws, and we’ll cover important changes members need to know. This workshop will also demystify the process of applying for unemployment benefits. Learn about the requirements of the Employment Development Department (EDD) and the step-by-step process when applying for benefits. This workshop will benefit anyone facing reduced, canceled, or unscheduled work in the present and near-future, and those whose households include people experiencing loss of work.
