Shout Out to Utah’s Unemployed

Utah’s Unemployment Insurance poster has recently been revised to include new information regarding a variety of free services available to assist workers who are unemployed in finding new employment.

The Utah Department of Workforce Services issued the mandatory poster to make it easier, through use of an assortment of specially designed programs, for unemployed workers attempting to find work.

The services available through Utah State Employment Centers include career counseling, job referrals, employer recruitment, workshops, and job training. Supportive services offered to unemployed workers include food stamps, financial and medical assistance, help with child care, and referrals to community resources.

Unemployed workers also have access to Job Connection Rooms that provide Internet access and Information Specialists to help them with their job searches, as well as the use of fax and copy machines at no charge.

The revised posted also includes new information about filing claims for unemployment benefits online.
