COVID-19 & the Idaho Department of Labor

By April 1, 2020May 1st, 2020COVID-19

The Idaho Department of Labor (IDOL) would like to assist employers and claimants impacted by COVID-19. The IDOL offers services to employers online and by phone. Please review the below IDOL resources.

Also, Idaho’s governor approved of a proclamation which will provide some relief for employers and job seekers. One provision is that during the state of emergency, employer unemployment tax accounts will not be charged when their associates are laid off due to COVID-19.

Our office will monitor COVID-19 updates closely and will send out additional announcements as we become aware of any these updates. You can also review these updates on our website at too.

Please reach out to your representative with any questions.
