Big Changes Coming to Louisiana’s Unemployment System This Sunday
With unemployment soaring in Louisiana, the system in place to handle the load of applications, check-ins, and payments has been overloaded. With so many folks trying to access the system at once, officials have been forced to step in and make a few changes.
The Louisiana Workforce Commission announced yesterday that you will no longer allow you to log on to report whenever you like. According to the report from NOLA.com;
workers whose nine-digit number ends in 0-3 can re-certify on Sundays. Workers whose last digit is 4-6 will be on Monday, 7-9 on Tuesday and everyone from Wednesday thru Saturday, the final day for re-certifying for the week.
According to Robert Wooley, the Workforce Commission's director of unemployment insurance, spreading the process to at least 3 days instead of 1 will speed up the process for everyone.
