According to a recent update to North Carolina’s unemployment regulations, [1] employers are now required to provide the following information to employees upon separation:

This provision is contained in a subchapter titled “Unemployment Compensation Due to Public Health Emergency or Disaster Declaration,” so it appears that it may only be effective for the duration of the COVID-19 public health emergency.  Although the regulation only explicitly requires this notice if an employee is separated from employment, based on (2) above, employers should also provide this notice to employees whose hours are reduced. The regulations do not address penalties for failure to comply with this notice obligation.
