DWD to assist employers, workers, agents

Posted: Friday, March 20, 2020

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development would like to assist employers, workers, and agents during this emergency. If you are temporarily closing or reducing worker hours, please encourage your employees to file for unemployment insurance benefits. Employees must do this online, through a computer or smart phone. They should visit unemployment.in.gov for Frequently Asked Questions, video tutorials and a link to file for unemployment insurance.

If you have the means to assist your employees by allowing them to file from your business, please assist as you can. DWD does have available equipment at our WorkOne locations, but we are also practicing social distancing which creates a barrier to quickly serving large groups of workers. Any assistance you can provide in getting these important benefits to your employees while preventing the spread of this disease is greatly appreciated.

If your employees must go to a WorkOne to use a computer, please have them contact the center ahead of time as some hours of operations have been changed. The Huntington WorkOne site is located at 2201 N. Jefferson Street inside the Huntington County Community Learning Center next to Hardees restaurant.
