In case you missed it, Governor Lamont announced the “Back to Work CT Program” to give long-term unemployed residents a $1,000 payment for obtaining a new job following the impact of COVID-19. To be eligible, workers must:
- Have filed an unemployment claim with the State of Connecticut for the week immediately prior to May 30, 2021;
- Obtain and maintain a full-time job for a period of eight consecutive weeks prior to December 31, 2021; and
- Not receive unemployment compensation during the required eight-week period of employment.
This program is being administered by the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services. If you are interested please contact StaffWorks today and we will make sure you are eligible and help you complete the application to receive your $1,000 for those employees that qualify.
