I have a claim and I was required to do four work search contacts each week. Do I have to do my work search during the pandemic?

FAQ Answer

No, for now. Governor Burgum signed an Executive Order on Friday, March 20th that temporarily waives the work search requirement for all claimants. Job Service has adjusted our systems so that you will not be asked to enter any work searches you have completed when you certify your weekly eligibility.

Beginning on July 26, the work search requirement will go back into effect. It is a good idea to get your resume and cover letter updated now so you will be ready to complete the requirement that week.
