Unemployment

News and Alerts

ALERT: President Trump signed four Executive Orders on August 8, including one to supplement unemployment insurance benefits by $400 per week through the end of the year. The U.S. Department of Labor is working on guidance for states to implement this “lost wages assistance.” We will share more information when available. If you have already filed for benefits, you do not need to contact CDLE to receive the additional payments.

ALERT: New work-search requirements are in place. You are now required to complete work-search activities every week to be paid benefits unless you are job attached and expect to return to your regular schedule by July 5.
