California: Call for Executive & Legislative Support

As nonprofits face unprecedented financial challenges due to COVID-19, your action is needed in requesting the State of California to waive the remaining 50% reimbursable unemployment charges after the 50% provided in the CARES Act. Contact Governor Newsom’s Office and legislators via phone and email asking the following:

 

We are requesting a waiver from the State of California’s requirement that reimbursing employers reimburse the State for unemployment charges when those charges are for COVID-19 related unemployment claims.

 

FIRST please contact your Assemblymember and Senator which can be found at the following site: http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov.
