The 116th Congress recently enacted benefits related to two unemployment insurance (UI) programs: Unemployment Compensation (UC) and Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA). Congress has continued to consider modifications to these two programs within the federal-state UI system to provide weekly income replacement for individuals unavailable to work or unemployed. This book looks at the important issues concerning unemployment as a result of COVID-19.
