The COVID-19 pandemic has created a crisis in the country’s economy, with April’s unemployment rate soaring to 14.7 percent. Predictions for May are even more dire. Our distinguished panel will address how New York State is handling the unprecedented number of unemployment applications and the effect it is having on the state’s system. Panelists will present an overview of the existing unemployment insurance rules, changes to the availability of unemployment insurance due to the pandemic, and the New York State Department of Labor’s role in evaluating eligibility and adjudicating claims. This panel is a must for UI practitioners as well as those attorneys who want to become familiar with the unemployment insurance system.
