||Changes coming to unemployment system in Mississippi
JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) — The Mississippi Department of Employment Security will soon require weekly records of a recipients work search history to qualify for benefits.
Starting October 26, people receiving or applying for Unemployment Insurance will be required to provide the updates each week.
The MDES Online UI System will require recipients to list three job search activities each week.
The agency will then verify the job searches with the employers listed in the weekly work search reports.
If an employer cannot verify a claimant’s job search report, MDES will deny unemployment benefits to that person.
