UC & Work Refusal in Pennsylvania

Posted on June 08, 2020


Some recalled employees are refusing to return to work because they prefer collecting unemployment benefits. To notify the PA Unemployment Department of such refusals, a new form has been created: UC-1921W Refusal of Suitable Work Form

Employers should also review their statements of unemployment compensation charges very closely. We have heard from a number of clients that they are being charged for claims for which they should not be charged under Act 9 of 2020, because the claims are COVID-related.
