Some members are being told not to file for unemployment by other members. It is your right to file. The notion that a contractor or employer will look negatively on your future employment because of this is nonsense. If anyone suspects this type of behavior, they should inform the Business Manager directly. All contractors and employers understand the emergency nature behind this virus and what it's doing to our nation. Your benefits and future employment will not be jeopardized. If you need to file...file now.
