Kentucky Unemployment Job Search Requirements

Updated : June 19th, 2019

Kentucky unemployment benefits are only for those who are unemployed but actively seeking work. You are required to look for work the entire time you collect benefits without limiting your search to one source. Keep accurate records of your job search. The OET (Office of Employment and Training) performs random audits of unemployment accounts and may ask you present your job search records as proof of your search. If you cannot provide details of your job search, the OET can deny your benefits.

    1. Contract workers cannot generally claim since employers don’t pay unemployment taxes into the system. Please check with your employer if they did.

  1. I just got laid off but I have a definite return date 3 weeks from now to return to my job do I have to do the job search since I am going back to my job

  2. I was given a date to follow up at the unemployment office but have misplaced it. Will I be notified by email when to show up?
