NEW! Sign-Up for SIDES — an efficient, electronic way to respond to department requests!
SIDES is a new, web-based system that allows the Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) and employers to communicate more efficiently when an individual files a new unemployment compensation claim. The system transmits questions from L&I about the individual's claim to the employer electronically, and allows the employer to respond electronically, which will enhance the timeliness and accuracy of UC claims.
Are you a UC claimant looking for a career or a business looking to hire? Keystone Works provides business-driven training opportunities for eligible UC claimants. A claimant can continue to collect full UC benefits while participating in training provided by a business, and the business is entitled to receive incentive payments if the claimant is hired and certain requirements are met.
