Michigan Recent Unemployment Legislation
Acccording to the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics as of April 1st Michigan would no
longer meet the criteria to remain in the extended benefits program. As a result
HB 4408 was signed by Governor Snyder to ensure the program stays strong for those
who need it.
This bill provides up to 20 weeks (reduced from 26 weeks) of unemployment payments
to those who exhaust their state and Emergency Unemployment compensation benefits.
By reducing the number of weeks from 26 to 20 the long term saving will help reduce
the burden on taxpayers and job creators.
