COVID-19 Unemployment for Employers

If your business is reducing hours or closing due to COVID-19 you may expedite the unemployment claim process for your employees by submitting an Employer-Filed Mass Claim.

Employer-Filed Mass Claim

This is the preferred method if your business has not yet closed and you believe you will reopen. If you are uncertain of a reopen date, enter 16 weeks from the date of filing. Employers provide a list of employee names and required information to file a claim on behalf of employees. Instruct employees not to file an individual claim and that they will need to certify each Sunday to be paid in a timely manner.

Employers can send partial layoffs to Partial.Claims@tn.gov

Important Information:

  • If you do not submit an employer filed a mass claim, you will be required to respond to each individual employee’s claim, delaying the benefit payment process.
  • You should encourage your employees to have an active email address to ensure this process works efficiently.
  • Please tell your employees to look for an email so they can register at Jobs4TN.gov, where they will complete weekly certifications to notify the state they are still not working.
