Hello job seekers. If you find any links that don't send you where they should, then let me know. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs, https://www.scribd.com/document/457036071/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Apr-20
In this state, beginning Apr. 18th, if you were laid off due to this Coronavirus, then you will be eligible for an extra $600 per week in addition to what you are making now per week on unemployment compensation. So, for example, if you are currently receiving $300 per week for unemployment then you will soon be receiving an extra $600 per week.
Also, if you had applied for unemployment and found out you didn’t have the necessary 680 hours in your base year (Jan to Dec 2019), then as of Apr. 18th, that 680 hours requirement will not be there. So, if you applied before and were rejected because of the 680 hours requirement, then re-apply after the 18th.
This law is retroactive to when the law was signed. It lasts until July 31st, 2020. More info at this link, https://esd.wa.gov/newsroom/retroactive-payments
