Vermont employers received good news recently when Governor Phil Scott (R) signed a measure that would keep unemployment benefits related to the COVID-19 pandemic from being charged against their accounts. S.62 which was signed June 1, will preclude the charging of all virus-related unemployment benefits claimed in the year 2020. In conjunction with this, employer unemployment tax rates effective July 1 will not include these charges which should have a positive impact on them. Subsequent years will not include COVID-related claims either.

Furthermore, employers may be relieved of charges for benefits claimed in 2021 if the reason for the claimants’ filing is due to one of the following; business closure required by a public health mandate, employer temporarily laid off quarantined employees, or the employer voluntarily stopped operations because of exposure in the workplace to COVID-19. A process and form to apply for relief will be adopted by the Commissioner by July 1.
