Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) Work
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
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.
