In this unprecedented employment environment, our prayers and thoughts are with everyone who has been furloughed, laid off or fired.
Furloughed workers are on an unpaid leave of absence and still considered an employee. They may be eligible to receive company benefits, if their employer and insurance company both agree.
Laid off workers no longer have a relationship with the employer. Many employers are choosing this method of inactivity, so the employee can file for unemployment benefits. However, check your state’s requirements; furloughed workers may receive unemployment rights too.
The below link to the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) ACT provides both individual and employer filing instructions with claim forms for everyone in Georgia.
Every Friday we will post unemployment numbers, employment updates and job opportunities.
There ARE opportunities out there besides delivery drivers. The Red Cross needs Phlebotomists. Check your city and county governments for law enforcement careers. If you like marketing and sales, Account Managers/Executives are needed in several industries. Health insurance companies need customer service agents (CSR). Private security officers and administrative positions are available as well.
We are starting to receive a ton of employment data. Contact us with any questions or if you need additional info.
Stay Healthy & Blessed!
