Did your school year end early? Could your next school year start late? Are you less sure this year that you will have a job when school starts again than you were last year? Are you are an education support professional and do not know how the rules are different for you? Do you typically work during the summer break as an employee or in self-employment, but are not sure you will be able to work this summer due to COVID-19?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, NH-NEA urges you to join a special webinar “Unemployment Eligibility in Light of COVID-19: A Q&A Session with the NH Department of Employment Security.”
