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 CORVID-19 (novel coronavirus)
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 concerns regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to evolve, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order (EO 2020-21), directing all Michigan businesses and operations to temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. The order also directs Michiganders to stay in their homes unless they’re a part of that critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital or grocery store. Effective at 12:01 am on March 24, 2020, for at least the next three weeks, individuals may only leave their home or place of residence under very limited circumstances, and they must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention when they do so, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the individual’s household to the extent feasible under the circumstances.
TO OUR CLIENTS: Our interpretation of the COVID-19 stay-at-home order indicates that we are required to close our office to the public. We will continue to work regular office hours, but it will be remotely; you will still be able to contact us at our regular phone number 906-265-1040, email email@example.com or via our Facebook page.
We are already set up to transact all of our business via our secure web portal, email, telephone, ‘snail mail’, and other means. We also have a mailbox on the outside of our building where you can drop your information.
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.
