Unemployment Requirement for Users to Actively Seek Work is Starting Again
Thursday, May 13, 2021

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana residents receiving unemployment benefits will again have to show they are actively searching for work as the governor is reinstating a requirement that he lifted soon after the COVID-19 pandemic hit the state.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed an executive order this week that puts the job search requirement back in place starting June 1.

Indiana is joining several other states creating more requirements for people to stay on unemployment, with many businesses blaming the ease of obtaining the weekly jobless benefits with making it more difficult to fill job openings.
