Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Labor Commissioner Mark Butler are teaming up to address an increase in the number of partial claims filed as a result of businesses reducing work hours or temporarily closing because of COVID-19. According to officials, unemployment claims in Georgia have increased sharply amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
“We are laser-focused on assisting the hardworking Georgians who have been impacted by the spread of the virus,” said Gov. Brian Kemp. “Working with GDOL and our partners across the public and private sectors, we can ensure affected employees land on their feet and are made aware of other employment opportunities. Together, we will protect Georgia’s top-notch workforce as we continue to fight the spread of COVID-19.”
