For Employees Affected by COVID-19 Reductions in Hours:
To help combat the spread of COVID-19, the City of Redondo Beach has enacted many different measures affecting our business operations and employees. Due to the directives issued by state and local public health agencies, the City can only conduct essential business services at this time.
We understand this means there are employees who will face a reduction in hours until such time normal business operations resume. If you are affected by a reduction in hours due to measures taken to fight COVID-19 (because you would otherwise be working if normal business operations were in place), you may be eligible to file for unemployment through the State of California.
Claims may be filed through the State of California Employment Development Department (EDD). Please visit the EDD's COVID-19 Worker Resources website for more information: https://edd.ca.gov/about_edd/coronavirus-2019/workers.htm.
Due to high demand, the EDD recommends using the online portal available at https://www.edd.ca.gov/claims.htm to file your claim. If you have technical difficulties, you may also contact the EDD in English at 1-800-300-5616. Other languages are available on the EDD website, as well as information outlining the EDD’s hours of operation.
The EDD's Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit calculator will provide you with an estimate of your weekly UI benefit amount, which can range from $40 to $450 per week. Once you file your claim, the EDD will verify your eligibility and wage information to determine your weekly benefit amount (WBA). For more information, refer to How Unemployment Insurance Benefits Are Computed (PDF).
There is information you will need to have available to file your claim. This includes items such as:
- Last Employer Information
- Name of company as it appears on your pay check stub or W-2 form
- Complete mailing address including zip code. Please note that the City uses a third-party administrator to assist with claims processing, so you should not update the mailing address that populates. Instead, you may update the physical address to the City's main address of 415 Diamond Street, Redondo Beach, CA 90277.
- Company’s phone number and supervisor’s name
- The reason for working reduced hours or no longer working with the employer
- Period of employment (start date and end date)
- Wages earned and how you were paid (hourly, weekly, monthly)
The City will continue to take the necessary measures to help protect the health and safety of our employees and our community.
