GOVERNOR LAMONT ADDRESSES UNEMPLOYMENT RATING AND EXTENDS LIQUOR PERMITS
Governor Lamont signed Executive Order No. 7W today which includes the following:
No increased experience rating based on COVID-19 unemployment claims: Modifies state laws surrounding the requirement for employers to be charged an “experience rating” so their unemployment premiums are not unduly increased because of the high number of claims caused by COVID-19.
Renewal date for on-premise liquor permits to be extended: Modifies state statutes to provide that all on-premise liquor permits in active status when Executive Order No. 7D went into effect on March 16, 2020 shall be extended by four months, including any business whose permit expired between March 16 and April 9.
