New Unemployment Requirements Will Be Upheld
State labor officials have begun enforcing new unemployment requirements passed by the Legislature. The longer a person is jobless, the less salary he or she can refuse and still keep unemployment benefits. After 13 weeks of benefits a person offered a job at 75-percent of their previous salary could lose benefits for not accepting it. Tennesseeís Labor and Workforce Development wants to encourage employers to report when legitimate job offers have been made. After 38 weeks without a job those still looking could be pushed to accept 65 percent of their previous pay or lose benefits however, those people will not be required to accept an offer for less than the federal minimum wage.
