Unemployment Information:

The state Department of Labor implemented a special system to handle the surge of calls about unempmloyment insurance as coronavirus shakes the job market around the state. 

The state waived the seven-day waiting period for unemployment insurance and  implemented a filing system that spreads out filings over multiple days of the week, based on the first letter of a filer’s last name.
