Was your business affected by flooding?
Did you close your business and lay off workers due to flooding? Let us know.
If flooding caused you to close your business, unemployment benefits paid to your laid off employees will not affect your future unemployment insurance tax rate (or quarterly unemployment charges if you are a reimbursing employer). This provision only applies if 25 percent or more of your workforce was laid off due to the flooding.
We don’t know if your business was affected in this way unless you tell us. Please Raise an Issue related to at least one of your employees that was laid off due to flooding.
