New Jersey DOL Proposes Rule To Require Unemployment Applicants To Register For Work And Engage In Other Work Search Related Activities

Currently, an unemployment claimant must simply report to the Division of Unemployment Insurance by telephone, Internet, or mail as directed by the Division to be eligible for unemployment benefits. On February 19, 2013, the New Jersey Department of Labor issued proposed amendments (to N.J.A.C. 12:17-4.1 and 4.3) that would require unemployment claimants to not only report to the Division, but also to register for work and participate in work search related activities as directed by the Department. If a claimant fails to register and participate in those activities, the claimant may be found ineligible for benefits. The Department is requesting comments to this proposal by April 20, 2013.
