Unemployed in the pandemic? Agency director Steve Gray answers your questions

The Detroit News

Your job’s in doubt. Your paychecks are on hold. The COVID-19 crisis is wreaking professional havoc on you and hundreds of thousands of other Michiganians.

And you have questions.

We got some answers Wednesday morning in the fourth of our series of “Coronavirus Q&A” Facebook Live conversations. The talk features Steve Gray, director of Michigan's Unemployment Insurance Agency.

Gray, a professor and attorney with 30 years of expertise in unemployment insurance and administrative law, also has served as a member of the bipartisan legislative work group responsible for creating an eight-bill package aimed at improving Michigan's UIA system and customer experience. The eight bills became effective in early 2018.

Detroit News reporter Craig Mauger led the conversation, which lasted a little more than 30 minutes.
