Georgia’s Emergency Rule

March 20, 2020

Georgia’s Emergency Rule

The Georgia Department of Labor (DOL) has adopted an emergency Rule 300-2-4-0.5 Partial Claims, effective March 16, 2020. The rule mandates all Georgia employers to file partial claims online on behalf of their employees for any week during which an employee (full-time/part-time) works less than full-time due to a partial or total company shutdown caused by the public health emergency.

The following are links to instructions on which circumstances require filing these partial claims online and how to file them:

  • As noted in those instructions, the employer must go to the state’s Employer Portal https://eresponse.gdol.ga.gov/idp/sso/employer/login
  • If you do not have login credentials and do not know who in your organization has login credentials, you can refer to the following Employer Portal Administrator Guide to get access to the site https://eresponse.gdol.ga.gov/pdf/uitax/EmployerPortalAdministratorGuide.pdf
  • First Nonprofit does not have access to its clients’ Employer Portal accounts and cannot get employer users access to the Employer Portal.
  • Questions related to accessing the Employer Portal should be directed to the state agency as noted in that Employer Portal Administrator Guide link above.

Thresholds, Chicago, IL

Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.

Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
