Employees & Workers Impacted

If your job has been affected by COVID-19, you may be eligible to receive Unemployment Compensation (UC) benefits. You can visit the Unemployment Compensation website, and the UC Benefits & COVID-19 FAQ Page for specific information.

Due to the high volume of calls and live chat requests the PA Department of Labor & Industry’s UC team is receiving, the best way to reach the team is via email at uchelp@pa.gov and a member of their team will be in touch if they need any additional information.

You can also get updates and information on PA Department of Labor & Industry’s Facebook page and Twitter.

Public Health Safety Measures for Businesses and Workers

On April 15, Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Heath Dr. Rachel Levine signed an order directing protections for critical workers who are employed at businesses that are authorized to maintain in-person operations during the COVID-19 disaster emergency. The order establishes protocols to help employees maintain a social distance during work.

Enforcement
If employees or customers want to report possible health and safety violations in the workplace related to COVID-19, they can file a complaint with their local law enforcement agency or submit a complaint to the PA Department of Health.
