United States: The unemployment rate ticked up to 3.7% in June from 3.6% for the previous two months.

Alabama – Updated! May 21, 2019, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed Act 2019-204. This legislation links an employee’s maximum weekly unemployment benefits and their duration to the state’s unemployment rate. Under the new law, the maximum number of weeks allowed will vary depending on the state’s unemployment rate—with more weeks of eligibility available as the unemployment rate goes up. As per our previous notice,  the new limit caps benefits after 20 weeks unless workers participate in specific training programs, which could extend benefits an additional 5 weeks. The law also increases the weekly benefit amount by $10 to $275.

New Jersey: New Jersey takes on employers’ misclassification of workers. With the rise of the gig economy, the misclassification of workers as independent contractors, rather than employees, is a growing problem in New Jersey, according to Governor Phil Murphy. Governor Murphy issued an executive order in May of 2018 creating a task force on worker misclassification and recently signed into law S-2557, which gives the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development the authority to shut down a job site when an employer violates state wage laws or assess a civil penalty of $5,000 per day. The taskforce has provided 16 tasks to take on to combat worker misclassification. See CCC’s website for updates.

South Dakota: South Dakota’s Unemployment Insurance program has been renamed to Reemployment Assistance, effective July 1.

Virgin Islands: The Department of Labor has issued a notice to the public regarding the review of individual case files for claimants who may have received an overpayment of Unemployment Insurance Benefits. The departmetn has indicated that an overpayment occurs when a recipient  of unemployment insurance benefits receives benefit payment for which they are not entitled.  Pursuant to Title 24, Chapter 12 Section 305 Recovery and Recoupment, claimants are responsible for repaying any overpayment of benefits he/she was not eligible to receive back to the Virgin Islands Department of Labor, Unemployment Insurance Division, including any taxes deducted. Notification of meeting and individual appointments with Unemployment Insurance staff will be announced.
