Employment

Georgia Department of LaborThe Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) is beginning to see an increase in the number of partial claims filed as a result of businesses reducing work hours or temporarily closing their doors as a result of recent developments of COVID-19. As of an emergency ruling this week by the Commissioner of Labor Mark Butler, employers are mandated to electronically file partial claims on behalf of their employees whenever it is necessary to temporarily lay workers off. All Georgia employers will share in the cost of unemployment benefits paid to employees temporarily displaced due to COVID-19 easing the stress on business owners during this health crisis. These emergency rulings will help to simplify the process and get workers paid. All career centers are closed to the public, but employees are still working to process claims.NEW Information for filing for unemployment, mandatory filing by employers for partial claims, and reemployment servicesQ & AEmployee RightsEmployer RequirementsFFCRA Poster
