PIM’s Human Resource (HR) Conference has been rescheduled, but we hope you can still join us virtually on May 12, 2020 for a special webinar. It is imperative to recognize and respond effectively to the emotional and psychological impact this pandemic has had on you, your staff, your customers, and community.  There are many emotions that are triggered by such a crisis, including fear, anxiety, helplessness, and isolation.  We all need to identify and handle stress early to minimize the damage. Our presenter, Kit Welchlin, M.A., CSP, has delivered over 600 seminars on stress management, guiding organizations through change and helping people manage stress and maintain productivity.

Unemployment Insurance Update

PIM Member, Tom Revnew of the law firm Peters, Revnew, Kappenman Anderson, reported that under the guidance of the Department of Labor, if employees are eligible to receive at least $1 in benefits from the state, they are eligible for the full $600.00 additional federal unemployment compensation. (Refer to page I-5) (Based on the extent of the furlough, it is possible for employees to receive more weekly pay than before the furlough.) Individuals whose underlying benefit payments are intercepted to pay debts (e.g., overpayments, garnishments) are eligible for the $600, even if 100% of their weekly benefit amount is intercepted. No benefits are paid for any work week of 32 or more hours, or when gross earnings for the week are equal to or greater than their weekly benefit amount.
