The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development has adopted an emergency rule that expands the state's unemployment insurance notice requirements. The rule takes effect immediately and expires on Aug. 3, 2020, unless extended.


Background:

Under existing law, employers must post a notice about the availability of unemployment insurance benefits.


Emergency Rule:

The emergency rule requires that, at the time of separation, employers must provide employees with a written notice with instructions on how to file a claim for unemployment benefits and the Division of Employment and Training Services' contact information for filing a claim.

Employers must provide the notice as soon as practical, but no later than seven days from the employee's last day of work.

Employers must deliver the notice either in person, by mail to the employee's last known address, or by email, if correspondence in this form was previously authorized.


Compliance Recommendations:

Employers with employees in Alaska must ensure compliance with the emergency rule. Please contact your dedicated service professional with any questions.
