This webinar is for any Native American worker whose job has been impacted by COVID-19 and 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 has been denied. The webinar features Desiree Day, the Tulalip Tribes’ Human Resources Director. Desiree will share her experiences assisting the Tulalip community, including Tulalip tribal fishers, with unemployment benefits.
