Update from Employment Development Department


Unemployment benefit claims have reached levels not seen since the Great Depression. This issue has caused uncertainty and a slowing of benefit payout to workers. Join my office and Russell Best, EDD Employment Program Manager III on this call to get insight into best practices to receive benefits quicker. The EDD will also answer the most common questions asked during this COVID-19 Pandemic.

Topics Discussed:

Unemployment Insurance (UI)

Pandemic Unemployment Insurance (PUA)

My office has organized this Virtual Town Hall to discuss this important topic on Thursday, June 4th at 3 p.m. I encourage you to participate in the discussion.

Because of the volume of virtual guests we are expecting, live questions will not be possible. Those who wish to submit questions, please do so by June 3rd at 10 a.m. by emailing my office.
