New Reporting Requirements for Unemployment Insurance in Kentucky

A new Kentucky administrative regulation establishes the registration and reporting requirements that an unemployed worker is required to meet to draw unemployment benefits. Specifically, an unemployed worker must be registered for work with a state employment service before he or she is eligible to receive benefits. For each week an unemployed worker claims benefits, the worker must certify under penalty of perjury that he or she engaged in at least five work search activities, at least three of which consisted of submitting an application for employment, or interviewing for employment. Once provided benefits, the unemployed worker may be required to report for the purpose of continued benefit eligibility review as a condition for payment of benefits.
