Job Search Requirement Restored For Most Kentucky Unemployed


(Frankfort, KY) - Most of Kentucky's workers who are receiving unemployment will soon be required to prove they are searching for work at least once a week. 

Governor Andy Beshear recently announced that the change will take effect Sunday. 

Groups exempt from the job search requirement are members of unions that find work for them, students in training programs, and those laid off with a recall date within 12 weeks of their initial claim date. 

Those on temporary leave of absence and people who are part of a mass electronically filed claim are also exempt from the reporting requirement.
