North Carolina Unemployment Job Search Requirements
Updated : June 20th, 2019
The claimant must keep a record of the job search to provide proof to the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina.
Unless otherwise instructed, a claimant must look for work in person on two different days with at least 3 different employers and must keep a written record of all work search contacts for periodic review by Commission staff.
While receiving unemployment insurance benefits, the North Carolina Employment Security Commission (NCESC) may ask a claimant to complete a work search log. Only claimants who have been asked to provide a log need to complete the form. The log asks for the name, location and telephone number of businesses at which a claimant has applied.
These job search requirements help to ensure that a claimant is actively working to find employment. If the work search requirements are not met, a reduction or denial of benefits may occur.
