Unemployment Compensation in the Commonwealth of Virginia Poster Mandatory
The Unemployment Compensation in the Commonwealth of Virginia is a Virginia unemployment law poster provided for businesses by the Virginia Employment Commission. This is a required poster for all Virginia employers, and any business that fails to post this notification may be subject to penalties or fines.
Specifically, if a citizen's total family Virginia adjusted gross income is less than the amounts established under federal poverty guidelines, or the United States Department of Health and Human Services Poverty guidelines, then at that point they may qualify to claim the tax credit.
NOTICE TO WORKERS Every day many unemployed workers tell us that unemployment insurance is due them "because they have paid for it." This is not true in Virginia. There are no deductions from your paycheck for unemployment insurance. Employers' taxes are deposited in a trust fund from which unemployment insurance benefits are paid. Do not confuse unemployment insurance with Old Age and Survivors Insurance to which both you and your employer contribute. YOU MAY APPLY FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE BENEFITS IF: • You are totally unemployed, or • You are working at reduced wages and hours, IF TOTALLY UNEMPLOYED, ON A TEMPORARY LAYOFF, OR IF WORKING REDUCED HOURS: The first week you are unemployed, register for work, and file a claim for benefits. You can file your claim online at www.vec.virginia.gov or by calling our Customer Contact Center at 1 -866 -832 -2363. If you are totally unemployed, you must register for work online at www.vawc.virginia.gov . TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR BENEFITS, THE LAW REQUIRES THAT YOU: • File a claim with the Virginia Employment Commission. • Have earned sufficient wages from employers who are subject to the Virginia Unemployment Compensation Act or any other State within your Base Period. • Must be unemployed through no fault of your own. • Must be able and available for work and making an active search for work. • Continue to report as instructed by the Virginia Employment Commission. You cannot be paid unemployment benefits until you have filed your claim and have met all of the eligibility requirements. To speed payment of benefits, you should file your claim as soon as you become unemployed or your hours are reduced. If you have any questions about your rights and responsibilities under the Virginia Unemployment Compensation Act, visit our website, or call our Customer Contact Center at 1 -866 -832 -2363. THE LAW REQUIRES EMPLOYERS TO POST THIS NOTICE IN A PLACE VISIBLE TO All WORKERS. An Equal Opportunity Employer/Program Auxiliary services are available upon to individuals with disabilities.
