Latest Information from DWD
The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) has suspended rules requiring certain unemployment insurance claimants to physically appear at a Work One location to engage in reemployment services for the next four weeks or through the week of April 17. This will ensure that individuals who may be symptomatic do not have to physically appear to continue their unemployment insurance eligibility; and The DWD is assessing flexibility under federal and state law to expand eligibility for claimants and ease burdens on employers.
