CARES Act: Unemployment Insurance Provisions


The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) offered guidance on the unemployment insurance (UI) provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act of 2020 (CARES Act). This builds upon actions previously taken by Congress such as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) to extend UI coverage to individuals affected by COVID-19. In “Understanding the Unemployment Insurance Provisions in the CARES Act,” colleagues Laura K. Latham and Andrea R. Milano discuss the guidance issued by the The Department of Labor regarding federally funded initiatives to increase individuals’ unemployment insurance entitlement under the CARES Act.
