TWC Update – Unemployment Claims During The Pandemic

Tommy Simmons will discuss the many ways that the Covid-19 pandemic has altered the landscape of unemployment insurance (UI) in Texas. He will address regular and extended UI benefits, shared work plans, mass claims, and how employers may be protected in whole or in part against financial liability for such benefits. The talk will also cover the three new kinds of unemployment benefits created under the CARES Act and how eligibility is determined.

Finally, he will cover how the disaster-related benefits may affect employers’ state unemployment tax rates for 2021 and the years beyond.
