What to do if you are laid off

Many people are being laid off from work as a result of the pandemic.  If this happens to you in NY:

  1. Immediately file for Unemployment Insurance
  2. State that the layoff was due to a state government order in response to Covid-19

Here is a step-by-step guide to filing for UI.

If your employer contests your application, or if you are a member who does not work in NY, contact your steward or representative immediately.
