On March 19, 2020 an emergency change was made to the process of filing for unemployment. Under the new rules, employers must file for their full and part-time employees who lost hours due to a temporary partial or total company shutdown because of the COVID-19 emergency.
The Cares Act also allows filing for self-employed and other workers who have lost income due to the virus. Instructions are still in development for this group and should be available at the Georgia Department of Labor website by April 10th.
Check the website after April 10th for instructions on your filing process.
