We know our clients are facing many difficult decisions on how to navigate these uncertain times. Wegner CPAs is working diligently to gather information and resources as they become available.
Governor Evers announced today that he will issue an emergency order Wednesday, March 18 to waive work search requirements and modify the availability requirements for unemployment insurance benefits for workers impacted by COVID-19. The one-week waiting period for benefits as well as the requirement that UI claimants conduct at least four weekly work search actions will be waived during the COVID-19 emergency. His order will also ensure that claimants who are otherwise eligible but out of work due to COVID-19 are considered available for work and therefore eligible for benefits. More information on unemployment benefits can be found on the Department of Workforce Development website. https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/covid19/public/ui.htm
