If your employer expects to re-open in the future, you do not actively have to look for another job to receive benefits. To get benefits, you must:
- be able to work;
- stay in contact with your employer; and
- be available to work when your employer calls you back to work.
Note that when filing an online claim, our systems require you to enter your work search. You can bypass this during this pandemic by marking the temporary layoff option.
