Unemployment and Disability
Workers with disabilities that were recently laid off and can’t find new jobs due to COVID-19 are now in crisis because of state law NC GS 96-14.9c. This law prevents people who receive or apply for disability benefits from being eligible for unemployment because the State of North Carolina considers them “not able to work.”
We believe this is unjust and needs to change, so we support T-Man’s Law.
