It’s been a week since Governor Abbott announced the reopening of businesses in Texas, and the COVID-19 quarantine is gradually being lifted. State by state, industries are reopening and slowly recovering from the devastating effects of COVID-19. But what can we expect now that workers are returning to work amidst a pandemic?
  • The U.S. unemployment rate has jumped from 3.5% in February to 4.4% in March
  • In the four weeks preceding April 11, 22 million new unemployment claims were filed
  • “In the case of active claims, many injured workers are experiencing delayed recovery due to the pandemic.
