From Wisoncin Unemplayment Page: If you are unemployed and you've worked for a covered employer (an employer who pays UI tax) in the last 18 months - please apply for unemployment insurance now at https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uiben/apply. If you are filing because of the CARES Act (Federal Stimulus Bill) - e.g. self-employed, independent contractors, workers with limited work history, and others we are asking you to wait to file* because our system is not yet set up to accept your application. We are waiting on additional guidance from USDOL. We expect those changes to be complete by mid-to late-April. We understand how important it is to get these payments to you as quickly as possible, and we are doing everything we can to get you the help you need. There is no need to call the Unemployment Insurance Call Center at this time. The department will announce when you are able to start filing your initial claim. We will have the most up-to-date information at https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uiben/caresact. *It is important to note that benefits will start from the time you became eligible for unemployment, not from the time your application is submitted or approved. This is also true of the additional $600 per week.
Contacting Unemployment DWD is experiencing an unprecedented call volume to our unemployment insurance and IT help lines. Unless you have received official notification from Unemployment Insurance that you must call our call center, please search for your answer at dwd.wi.gov/covid19/ or dwd.wi.gov/uiben/faqs in order to free up phone lines for folks who are required to call in.

The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) is encouraging Wisconsin employers to consider Wisconsin's updated Work-Share Program to avoid worker layoffs. The Work-Share Program, also called "short-term compensation" (STC), is designed to help both employers and employees. Instead of laying off workers, a participating employer may reduce their work hours. Workers whose hours are reduced under an approved work-share plan receive unemployment benefits that are pro-rated for the partial work reduction. This allows everyone in the work unit to maintain some income and their health benefits.
