Got questions on unemployment insurance? Check out this podcast I just recorded with Gabrielle Carteris, the President of SAG-AFTRA (the screen actors’ union), about the Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits are available under the recently-passed CARES Act.  We go through the basics of UI and then concentrate particularly on those industries where it’s common for people to have a lot of different jobs, including people who have both W2 and 1099 jobs with fair frequency.
