PA Workers Affected by COVID-19 Could Qualify for Unemployment/Workers Comp

Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry announced Monday morning that PA Workers Affected by COVID-19 May be eligible for Unemployment and Workers’ Compensation Benefits.

Applying online is the fastest and easiest way to get started.

"As Pennsylvania and the nation implement mitigation efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, it is important to relieve some of the financial pressures our workers are facing so they can focus on remaining healthy and safe," said Secretary Oleksiak. "The best option is for employers to offer their employees paid time off. If leave is not available and your job has been impacted by this new virus, you may be eligible for benefits either through unemployment or workers' compensation. If you work in a job or industry that likely will be affected, prepare now by knowing what you need and how to file so your application can be processed quickly." 

For example, you may be eligible for unemployment compensation if:

  • Your employer temporarily closes or goes out of business because of COVID-19;
  • Your employer reduces your hours because of COVID-19;
