North Carolina / GOP Governor Signs Unemployment Insurance Reforms

Gov. Pat McCrory Tuesday signed into law a bill that would rework the state’s unemployment insurance Pat McCroysystem.

House Bill 4 increases taxes for some employers, shortens the number of weeks an unemployed worker is eligible for benefits, and reduces the maximum benefits such a person can receive.

The action by the GOP governor came as good news to Chuck Edwards, president and CEO of the C. Edwards Group Inc., which owns seven McDonald’s Restaurants in western North Carolina.

“I know that business in general is very appreciative of the state leaders for giving this some attention because the problem wasn’t even on the radar screen two years ago,” Edwards said.
