The Guam Department of Labor has delayed payment for its “mega” batch until next week which they say, on the upside, allowed staff to add more clean claims.
Dave Dell’Isola, GDOL Director, says there’s a delay in payouts yet again because of fraud issues.
The lag has meant more people added to the payout list, bumping the total from $54 million to nearly $60 million.
Once this “super” batch is out next week, GDOL says it will have compensated over 28,500 island residents.
Meantime, GDOL’s operations at the Guam Community College have shut down and the department is asking anyone who needs help with their unemployment application to make an appointment at the Agat, Yona, or Dededo libraries.
