Your Unemployment Questions From Work Search Requirements To Changes to Qualifications

Now hiring sign in Portsmouth.
Dan Tuohy; NHPR

As Governor Sununu chose to end federal unemployment insurance for COVID-19 starting in June, and the state has begun requiring that qualifying applicants to prove they are searching for work again, we talk with Deputy Commissioner Lavers of N.H. Employment Security about the new changes, ongoing challenges, appeals, and overpayments. 

Air date: June 2, 2021. 

Find more information at the N.H. Employment Security website, or call the hotline: (603) 271-7700.
