Alaska FAQ

Last Updated: April 3, 2020

We will be adding additional questions as we are able to answer them. Additional answers that apply to all Council-states can be found at the bottom of our main COVID-19 Resource page. If you have more questions or feel you did not get the answer you needed, contact us at (877) 284.7936 or COVID19@nwcarpenters.org.

➤ What should I do if my employer is not following health and safety guidelines?
If you believe your job site is unsafe, or that proper precautions are not in place to keep you safe, we need to know. Representatives will work with you and the contractor to make sure that the job site is following proper safety guidelines. If you think your job site is not following CDC or OSHA guidelines for COVID-19, call our hotline (877) 284.7936 or email us at COVID19@nwcarpenters.org.
➤ Do I still have to wait a week to become eligible for unemployment?

No, the state waived the waiting period.

➤ Can I still receive unemployment if I choose not to work because I do not want to risk going to work during a state order to stay at home?
➤ If my kids are out of school and I have to take care of them, do I qualify for unemployment?

Yes. This does not disqualify you from receiving unemployment insurance benefits. Check out the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development page for more information.
