“With unemployment high, many businesses closed and many others looking to reopen beginning on May 20, there are undoubtedly many questions small business owners are seeking to answer,” said Sen. Abrams. “I hope that my colleagues and I will be able to provide important information on unemployment benefits for self-employed individuals, best and recommended practices for re-opening businesses to follow as Connecticut begins to reopen, and other pressing details to help them through this difficult time.”
