Nonprofit Unemployment Obligations
March 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
A free webinar as part of Mass Cultural Council’s Recover, Rebuild, Renew Series.
Unfortunately, while the pandemic has expanded remote work opportunities for workers, it has also forced many of them into unemployment. In this final workshop in the series, we will provide an overview of the Massachusetts unemployment system, from the initial claim to receipt of benefits.
The format of this workshop will be a 1.5-hour virtual webinar, with time built-in for questions and answers. This webinar will be taught solely by attorneys.
Outcomes: At the end of this session, participants will be able to understand unemployment eligibility criteria and the unemployment process, the employer’s reporting obligation, how to approach certain problems raised by remote work, such as work performed in multiple states, and how to apply for individualized legal assistance from the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
Presented by: Lucas Blackadar, Esq., Director of Legal Services, Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston.
