    When an employee is laid of/furloughed without pay, if they meet the eligibility for unemployment they would receive regular unemployment.

    If an employee was unable to work due to covid and was ineligible for regular unemployment, they may have been eligible for PUA.

    I'm in business but I'm not an accountant. My understanding is that PUA was for the self employed and contract laborers. "Gig workers" was said. People who couldn't otherwise file for standard unemployment. Like me - I got it until the federal supplement ran out. I am a business owner - essentially self employed. When our doors closed there was zero income.
