During the coronovirus (COVID-19) crisis, circumstances are changing fast, almost daily. This post will be updated as new information becomes available.
Benefits like unemployment vary state by state. Because we are California-based, we would like to share the latest information we have regarding employer and employee options for our California-based businesses.
If you are unable to work due to having or being exposed to COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional), you can file a Disability Insurance Claim.
Disability Insurance provides short-term benefit payments to eligible workers who have full or partial loss of wages due to a non-work-related illness, injury, or pregnancy. Benefit amounts are approximately 60-70 percent of wages (depending on income) and range from $50 – $1,300 a week.
Californians who are unable to work because they are caring for an ill or quarantined family member with COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional) can file a Paid Family Leave Claim.
Paid Family Leave provides up to six weeks of benefit payments to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages because they need time off work to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child. Benefit amounts are approximately 60-70 percent of wages (depending on income) and range from $50 – $1,300 a week.
