Publication Date

Abstract

This panel will focus on changes in unemployment insurance (UI) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and how lessons from these changes can guide reform of the federal-state UI system. For example, what lessons does the CARES Act UI payments experience offer on how we can better promote an equitable recovery? Based on the CARES Act experience, what should be the minimum required state responsibilities in the regular federal-state UI system?
