Informational Webinar for Native American and Alaskan Natives: COVID-19 and Unemployment Benefits
October 28, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This webinar is for any Native American or Alaskan Native worker whose job has been impacted by COVID-19 and who seeks information about unemployment benefits. Join us if you work for tribal government, tribal enterprise, private business or you are an independent contractor and you have been laid off; your hours have been reduced; you were discharged (fired); or you quit your job.
Speakers from the Unemployment Law Project and Northwest Justice Project will answer questions about eligibility for state unemployment insurance benefits, expanded eligibility under the CARES Act, how to navigate common application problems, and what to do if your application had been denied. This webinar features Gina LaPointe, the Puyallup Tribe’s Workplace Development Director as well as Krista Mahle, M.S., Lummi Nation’s Training and Development Administrator.
