We at Haukkala & Co. take our responsibility to do our part to ensure the health and safety of our customers, our employees and our community very seriously and we want you to know about the actions we are taking in response to concerns about COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)
To our clients,
We take great care in protecting our clients, staff, and the communities in which we serve. Your well-being is of the utmost importance. As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) economic recovery continues to evolve, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order (EO 2020-110) on June 1, 2020, which moves all of Michigan to Stage 4 of the Michigan Safe Start Plan. “As a result, Michiganders are no longer required to stay home. Instead, certain businesses will remain closed and specific activities that present a heightened risk of infection will remain prohibited. Any work that is capable of being performed remotely should be performed remotely(Part 4 of EO 2020-115). To safeguard our staff and clients, we as an office with the capability to work remotely will do so and will continue to remain closed to the public for the foreseeable future. We will continue to transact all business via our secure web portal, email, telephone, ‘snail mail’, and other means. We also have a secured mailbox on the outside of our building where you can drop your information.
Please have patience while we work remotely to ensure the safety of our clients, staff, and the communities in which we serve. Phone calls are taken 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday- Thursday and emails are answered in the order they are received. .
We appreciate your business and your patience while we continue to serve our clients and community safely.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order Monday extending unemployment insurance benefits to workers who are home caring for sick relatives or taking care of their children during the coronavirus pandemic. Also, anyone losing work as a result of the crisis is advised to apply.
If your employment has been affected by COVID-19, you can apply for unemployment benefits. We are taking steps to make the application process a little simpler for those affected. Please bear with us as we work to adjust our processes to address these extraordinary times.
Wisconsin officials have also set up a webpage with answers to frequently-asked questions regarding coronavirus-related unemployment.
"Wisconsin unemployment benefits are available to individuals who are unemployed through no fault of their own," according to the website.
