COVID-19 Unemployment Account


In its session that ended March 12, 2020, the Washington State Legislature passed Engrossed House Bill 2965 (c. 7, Laws of 2020), which appropriates funds into the COVID-19 Unemployment Account for the purposes of reducing specified benefit charges to eligible employers. Rules are necessary in order to establish which employers are eligible to apply for benefit-charge reduction, which benefit charges are eligible to be reduced, and the process for how employers can apply for benefit-charge reduction.
