EDD Information notice: Temporary Changes to WIOA Registration and Eligibility Determinations Due to COVID-19

Due to the impact of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Employment Development Department (EDD) recognizes the need for Local Workforce Development Areas (Local Area)to have maximum flexibility in providing Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) services.

Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

California is responding to the spread of a respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus (COVID-19). While investigations to learn more about the virus are ongoing, workers and employers should review their health and safety procedures to help prevent exposure to the virus.

The EDD provides a variety of support services to people who have lost their jobs or have had their hours reduced due to the impacts of COVID-19 in California. For faster and more convenient access to those services, we encourage the use of our online options.

Claims

The EDD manages the Unemployment Insurance (UI) and State Disability Insurance (SDI) programs for the State of California.

 

SDI includes Disability Insurance (DI), Paid Family Leave (PFL), and the Nonindustrial Disability Insurance (NDI) programs. NDI includes DI and Family Care Leave (FCL).

Claimants and employers must understand their roles and responsibilities in making sure that information is reported accurately and the correct benefits are paid. Committing fraud has serious outcomes. Learn more on Fraud and Penalties:

Work Sharing Program

 

Employers can apply for the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Work Sharing Program if reduced production, services, or other conditions cause them to seek an alternative to layoffs.

The Work Sharing Program helps employees whose hours and wages have been reduced:

  • Receive UI benefits.

  • Keep their current job.

  • Avoid financial hardships.
