Tennessee's Jobless Face New Requirements for Benefits

Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis has warned the state's 56,000 unemployment claimants they’ll soon be required to prove they’re looking for work.  Davis says beginning in April, claimants also will be required to meet face-to-face with state job service employees.  She says the new requirements will make sure claimants are on track to find employment and not get caught off-guard when their benefits expire.  The U.S. Department of Labor issued the new guidelines.
