I am a temporary or contingent employee and I have fewer hours or no hours scheduled due COVID-19 related reduction in work. Am I eligible for unemployment?

You may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI), including enhanced UI benefits that are part of the federal CARES Act. More information on UI and other resources available for workers is available at labor.ca.gov/coronavirus2019. Eligibility for UI benefits is determined by the State of California Employment Development Department. You may file a claim online and find more information about UI at edd.ca.gov/unemployment.
