Your employees who have had their hours reduced or who have been laid off due to the COVID-19 crisis are eligible for SC Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits.
You can speed up the process of getting UI checks to them and help reduce fraud by using the SC Dept. of Employment & Workforce process of Employer Filed Claims.
Your tax rating will not be impacted due to COVID-19 related claims.
Please take advantage of the Employer Filed Claims process. Getting money into the hands of impacted workers as fast as possible will help stabilize our economy for the benefit of all small businesses.
