    After speaking with the EDD office, because the effective start date (08/16/16) that Governor Brown stated in his Proclamation of a State of Emergency, EDD is unable to waive the waiting period since they have to start their claims on a Sunday which would be 8/14/16. Because 8/14/16 is before the effective start date (8/16/16) that Governor Brown stated, the waiting period is not being waived. New claims will have to be filed with an effective start date of 8/21/16. However, this will not work for the individuals that missed work from 8/16/16 – 8/18/16 because if the EDD opened a claim to cover these days they would use the effective date of 8/14/16 and the waiting period would still be valid meaning they will not cover the lost wages from 8/16-8/18 because this will be considered the waiting period.
