Many employees who have been notified they will be on furlough or hour reductions have questions about unemployment. We understand. Human Resources will provide an FAQ about applying for unemployment on Monday. As a reminder, full-time employees remain working full-time through April 15. The furlough and hour reductions begin on April 16.
Tribal Administration employees have been advised to telework as much as possible. The best way to reach Human Resources is by email, not phone: HumanResources@PuyallupTribe-nsn.gov.
Please see the state unemployment site for information about state unemployment. The site also has information and links about the federal CARES Act and how it might apply to your situation: https://esd.wa.gov/newsroom/covid-19
