EUC Mandatory Reporting and Work Search Requirements
On January 2, 2013, the President signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act which extends the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program to allow payments through December 28, 2013.

The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-96) signed into law by the President on February 22, 2012 requires all individuals receiving EUC benefits to engage in an active search for work, record, and submit weekly work search records for each week EUC is claimed.

In addition, certain individuals are required to report in person to their local career center to participate in mandatory EUC reemployment activities. Individuals identified to participate in these mandatory reemployment activities will receive a notice by email or regular mail to report to their local career center. Please ensure that your email address and mailing address on file with the Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) remain current. Failure to report as instructed will result in a denial of future benefits.

Work Search Requirements
The law requires individuals to record and submit proof of their work search efforts, listing verifiable contacts, while receiving EUC. You are required to
make a minimum of three new reportable job contacts each week. These contacts must be with employers not previously contacted. Employer contacts can include those made in person, by telephone, online or by résumés, faxed, mailed, or emailed. Failure, for any reason, to seek work or submit your work search records during (or for) any EUC week claimed will result in a denial and/or repayment of benefits.

Submitting Work Search Contacts
A Weekly Work Search Record must be submitted for each week of EUC benefits claimed. Work search records can be submitted by the following methods:

Internet: The faster, preferred method to submit your Weekly Work Search Record is by Internet. You will need to enter your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Use the same PIN number you use to submit your weekly certifications. You will receive a confirmation number after each submission. Retain each confirmation number as evidence of submitting your work search record.

Submit Weekly Work Search

Fax: The Weekly Work Search Record may be downloaded. This document is in PDF format and requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view or print. A free software download is available from the Adobe web site.

Other paper work search forms will not be accepted. Completed work search forms must be faxed to one of the following numbers: 404.525.3605; 404.525.3606 or 1.877.302.1573 (toll-free). DO NOT mail or deliver this form to a career center, as it will not be accepted.

Random Audits
Your work search records are subject to random audit by the GDOL. Failure to submit records of at least three work search contacts weekly by Internet or fax for any week of EUC benefits claimed, or listing unverifiable contacts, will result in a denial and/or repayment of benefits.
