COVID-19 & West Virginia Work Force Claims

West Virginia Work Force advised that employers may need to complete an “Initial Claims/Low Earnings Report” for associates depending on associate’s current work situations.

If an associate is full-time and experiences reduced hours, the employer does need to complete the form and provide it to the associate. However, if the associate is full-time and completely laid off, the employer does not need to complete this form. If the associate is a part-time associate, the employer does not need to complete this form – no matter the circumstance of hours.

Please review the attached example of an “Initial Claims/Low Earnings Report.”
