Kris Bowen, lead policy analyst for Washington State’s Employment Security Department, will join us again to provide an overview on the updates that have been made to unemployment benefits programs in the last few weeks. We will hear about the timeline for filing and the timeline for federal stimulus money, plus any additional rules that have been added.

We will also hear from Davis Wright Tremaine on some new requirements around paid leave that were passed at the federal level, including how these requirements overlap with unemployment benefits.  They will also discuss more specifically who qualifies for which types of leave and how employer tax credits factor in.

This event is free, and is open to members and non-members.
