Do employees need to file unemployment claims?

At the start of the employer’s participation in Shared Work, employees may have to complete a form to confirm their identity and help the employer create their claim. The employer will be responsible for distributing this form, making sure it’s completed for each participating employee and submitting it to KDOL. Employees should NOT file a claim for regular unemployment. Doing so will cause a delay in payment.
