Georgia requires employers to file partial unemployment claims on workers’ behalf


Author: ADP Admin/Monday, March 30, 2020/Categories: Compliance Corner , State Compliance Update, Georgia

The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) has issued an emergency rule requiring employers to file partial unemployment claims online on behalf of their employees who are temporarily laid off or whose hours have been temporarily reduced because of a lack of work due to coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Any employer found to be in violation of this rule will be required to reimburse the GDOL for the full amount of unemployment insurance benefits paid to the employee.

Compliance Recommendations:


Employers that temporarily lay off or temporarily reduce work hours due to COVID-19 should ensure that they file partial unemployment claims online on behalf of impacted employees. Instructions for doing so may be found here. Employers should also notify impacted employees that they don't have to file an unemployment insurance claim. Please contact your dedicated service professional with any questions.
