Important Announcement Regarding Work Search Requirements for Unemployment Compensation Benefits

Important Announcement Regarding Work Search Requirements for Unemployment Compensation Benefits

Beginning March 23, 2012, the Department of Employment Services will be enhancing and enforcing strict work search compliance measures as mandated by a recent change in federal law.

Failure to conduct a thorough work search (through seeking and applying for employment) or refusing to accept suitable work will affect your eligibility and may result in a denial of benefits.

DOES verifies work search activities and may ask for evidence of your work search efforts at any time. Protect your eligibility for benefits by keeping a detailed record of your work search. Provide as much information regarding your contacts and applications as possible.
