Jobs4TN Launches New Look and Feel for an Improved User-Experience - June 11

Temporary/ Seasonal Layoffs

All Individuals Must File for Unemployment Insurance

Those laid-off temporarily or seasonally are now required to file for Unemployment Insurance.  After careful review, employer-filed claims were identified as high-risk factors for overpayment. Eliminating such risks, individuals are now required to file their claim on Jobs4TN.  Temporary Layoffs are defined as those that are "job-attached."  This means you have a return to work date within 16 weeks from filing your unemployment claim or are a member of a hiring union.  These unemployment claimants are not required to look for work.
