Can my employees file for benefits if I tell them to stay home because I think they are a risk of spreading or at risk of contracting COVID-19?
If you tell an employee to stay home because you think her or she is at risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19, he or she should first use any paid sick leave or paid time off prior to applying for unemployment benefits. If an employee does not have any paid sick leave or paid time off, they may be eligible for unemployment benefits.
