The Reemployment Assistance (RA) program provides temporary financial assistance for people who have lost their job through no fault of their own. Workers who become unemployed because their employer needs to temporarily shut down or isolate workers due to COVID-19 might be eligible to receive benefits. Many variables can affect a worker’s eligibility and an employer’s liability for benefits. The Department of Labor and Regulation examines each case on an individual basis and makes determinations in accordance with the law.
