Can Caretakers Get Unemployment Benefits (PUA) as Schools Reopen | Guidelines Just Released by DOL

Dr. Chhoda examines brand new government guidelines (from the Department of Labor) for caretakers, as schools are partially reopening and addresses whether they still qualify for PUA:

Review this 5 page PDF, just released by Employment And Training Administration Advisory System, US Department Of Labor, Washington, DC 20210

According to the letter:


An individual who is: 1) ineligible for regular UC, EB, and PEUC; and 2) self certifies that he or she is unemployed, partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work because “a child or other person in the household for which the individual has primary caregiving responsibility is unable to attend school or another facility that is closed as a direct result of the pandemic and such school or facility care is required for the individual to work” may be eligible for PUA, as described in Section
2102(a)(3)(A)(ii)(I)(dd) of the CARES Act.


However, as described in Section 2102(a)(3)(B) of the CARES Act, the individual is not eligible for PUA if he or she has the ability to telework with pay or if he or she is receiving paid sick leave or other paid leave benefits, regardless of whether the individual is unemployed, partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work because of one of the pandemic related reasons listed in the statute at Section 2102(a)(3)(A)(ii)(I).

Dr. Chhoda explores 3 scenarios:

Scenario 1: The school system goes fully online as a direct result of the pandemic.

Scenario 2: The school system operates in a “hybrid” environment as a direct result of the pandemic, where students attend school in-person some days of the week, with the rest of the week being done remotely, online.

Scenario 3: The school system provides students the option to stay home and attend online classes or to attend school in-person full time.

    Dr. Chodda,
    If your wife ever questions you again as to why you make so many videos, please show her my comment:

    Mrs. Chodda, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the sacrifice of time spent with your husband so that he can record these videos for us. I am a single mother who's unemployment benefits are about to run out. The amount I get is only JUST enough to make ends meet, but at least it's SOMETHING. Without out it, I had NO IDEA what would happen next, but I knew it probably wouldn't be good. Your husband's reporting just gave me a glimmer of hope. I WOULD'VE NEVER KNOWN ABOUT THIS if your husband didn't alert us to this option. So please don't be upset with your husband. He may have just saved myself and my family as well as countless others a LOT of headache AND heartache in the near future. Thank you both very much🙇🏾‍♀️.
