July 16, 2020 Press Release
I was thrilled to hear about the opening of the new federally funded CT Department of Labor (CT DOL) Contact Center earlier today. Since mid-March, the Connecticut Department of Labor has received 708,000 claims for unemployment, which is roughly five years’ worth of claims, and at times there was a backlog of up to six weeks. With this unprecedented volume, and with my own office inundated with inquiries, I was happy to help provide the CTDOL with a total of $11M in federal coronavirus relief funding to help them process claims in a more timely and efficient manner. I look forward to this new service alleviating the anxiety felt by so many CT residents who were struggling to have their claims resolved.
