COVID-19 Relief Summary

UPDATED: 3/20/2020

Yesterday, the Legislature and Governor enacted emergency programs to provide paid leave to workers impacted by COVID-19. While this is a good first step, we remain focused on ensuring that all workers who need assistance as a result of illness or loss of income are protected and provided with the support they need. The impact of and response to this public health crisis is far-reaching, and therefore requires an equally expansive relief effort for the workforce.

We will be providing further guidance on the various leave programs and how workers can access them. Attached you will find the summary outline of the programs enacted by Legislature and the Governor.
