For employers: Some areas in the U.S. are currently undergoing a lockdown. During this time, only businesses deemed "essential" can stay open. RUSH will automatically route partners to fill these essential jobs. In other areas unaffected by lockdowns, work continues as usual but please practice adequate social distancing to help protect you and your family. Refer to the CDC website for more information.
For RUSH partners: We encourage you to update your profile to include more categories so that you continue to receive a steady stream of work opportunities.
For employers: The government passed a large stimulus bill to provide loans to businesses affected by the coronavirus. Apply on the SBA website.
For RUSH partners: The government passed a large stimulus bill to provide a "coronavirus stimulus check" to each working American (up to $1200). If you have already filed a 2019 tax return, the Internal Revenue Service will use the direct deposit information on your 2019 return to send your payment to your bank account. If you didn't provide the IRS with your direct deposit details, then the IRS will mail you a check. If you didn't file a 2019 tax return yet, the IRS will use information from your 2018 tax return. The SBA is also providing loans to independent contractors affected by coronavirus — apply on the SBA website — you may be eligible.
During times of crisis, we want to make it as easy and as cost-effective as possible to hire or find work. Therefore, we are discounting our platform fees by 50%, with the new rate being 3.25% for both employers and partners until July 2020. This is automatically active — there is nothing you need to do to take advantage of these new discounts.
