Registration with Job Center of Wisconsin mandatory on Oct. 13th

Wisconsin DWD is beginning to institute a host of job search and registration requirements as part of the new budget law, Act 20, and the new unemployment law, Act 36.

The first of these requirements is that unemployment claimants who file initial claims on or after October 13, 2013, and who do not have their job search waived must also create and have active accounts on the Job Center of Wisconsin website.

DWD has created a FAQ about this registration requirement. You can also download a PDF of the FAQ as well.

Lack of computer access does not appear to excuse this requirement. And, this requirement remains regardless of other job search sites you might be using.

So, anyone who begins an unemployment claim or who must start searching for work on or after October 13th will need to register with the state’s official job search web site.  Failing to register will mean no unemployment benefits will be paid until the registration is complete.
