Employment Resources

APIC-South Puget Sound is committed to offering accessible resources to the Asian and Pacific Islander community. Below you will find resources on employment resources for job searchers, schools, and communities. If you have additional opportunities to share, please visit the Contact Us page and send us a note. We are working to provide more language-accessible sources and will update this page as our work continues.

Unemployment Benefits

​Unemployment benefits provide you with temporary income when you lose your job through no fault of your own. The money partly replaces your lost earnings and helps you pay expenses while looking for new work. The benefits, from taxes your former employer(s) paid, are not based on financial need. 

 

Paid Family and Medical Leave Act (PFMLA)

​Paid Family and Medical Leave provides paid time off when you need it most. It’s here for you when a serious health condition prevents you from working, when you need time to care for a family member or a new child, or for certain military-related events.
