Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) Work Search

The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 enacts new standards for individuals receiving Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) benefits. Those receiving EUC benefits must be able to work, available for work and actively seeking work. 

To remain eligible for Emergency Unemployment Compensation benefits you must:

  • Engage in an active search for work and make appropriate employer contacts in light of the labor market, and your skills and capabilities;

  • Maintain a detailed record of your employer contacts; and

  • Provide your work search records to the Department of Labor upon request.

Acceptable work search efforts are generally considered to be a minimum of three employer contacts over a minimum of two days within the week claimed. 

You may be selected at random for an audit of your work search efforts. A detailed record of your work search efforts should include: the date of contact, employer name, employer address, name of contact person, position applied for, and result of contact.  You may use Form EUC-230 located below to assist you with maintaining your work search records. 

Failure to provide evidence of sufficient work search efforts for any weeks being audited will result in a disqualification of benefits for those weeks.
