IOWA - called back to work and no show? You QUIT. No Unemployment [View all]

Coronavirus in Iowa: State tells workers to return to jobs or lose their benefits
Iowa is warning furloughed workers that they will lose their unemployment benefits if they refuse to return when their employer calls them back to work.

Deputy director, Ryan West, says you won’t continue getting unemployment if you are called back to work. He says if your employer had to lay you off and they are calling you back, you should be able to go back to work.

West says if you do not go back to work, it will be considered a “voluntary quit,” and your unemployment will be suspended. There are some exceptions, including a diagnosis of COVID-19 that prevents you from working.

West says every case will be different and the individual issues will dictate what happens. But, he says if someone has a note from a doctor that says you should be out then that would allow you to stay home.
