LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – The Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation (DETR) has announced modifications to the state’s unemployment insurance system.
The Board of Examiners approved a plan to make it simpler to file for unemployment benefits. According to DETR, the project will be supported with $72 million from the federal government’s American Rescue Plan funding.
“The UI Modernization project kicking off soon is going to be a huge leap forward. This will make it significantly easier for eligible Nevadans to get paid the benefits they need. It will be a boost for businesses to track payments and claims. And it will make this work easier for staff,” DETR Director Elisa Cafferata said.
