Paid Leave & Unemployment Info
Guide to Coronavirus Paid Leave Programs
The U.S. Chamber has released a Guide to Coronavirus Paid Leave Programs for employers. There are differences between the paid leave options and filing for unemployment and employees cannot receive both. Download the guide available on this page, and visit here https://www.uschamber.com/report/coronavirus-paid-leave-programs-employer-guide for more information.
In addition, the Illinois Retail Merchants Association held a webinar last week with an attorney on paid leave related to COVID-19 and unemployment. Grundy County Chamber President & CEO Christina Van Yperen was on this call and may be able to help with some questions. The webinar itself and presentation are available at the IRMA website https://irma.org/covid-19/.
