New unemployment work search requirements in effect

Work search requirements for people on unemployment insurance were reinstated yesterday in Kentucky.

Anyone on unemployment will be required to search for work like they did before the pandemic, which involves reporting at least one job contact per week. This includes the job title, who you contacted and the name of the employer.

According to the state, if you’re on unemployment, you will have to seek full-time work, even if you’re currently working-part-time.

There are certain exceptions however.

You don’t have to conduct that search if you’re in a trade union that finds work for you, you’re a student in a training program, you have a recall date within 12 weeks, or if you were part of a mass claim filed by your employer.
