The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity confirmed this week that it will waive the work search and work registration requirements through May 29.
They will also waive the waiting week requirement through June 26, among other updates to the state unemployment system.
When the waiver expires, claimants must submit work searches for every week of state or federal benefits requested.
Additionally, new claimants who file after the expiration of the waiver must complete the work registration through Employ Florida, according to the DEO order. The department encourages claimants to continue searching for work regardless of the waiver extension.
