What is an Unemployment Office?

An unemployment office, sometimes also called a labor office, serves to increase employment and decrease unemployment among the local workforce. This office acts as a clearinghouse of job opportunities for unemployed workers while also screening applicants and providing benefits for them. An unemployment office also offers education and retraining programs for workers who have been laid off during plant closings.

Unemployment offices oversee the disbursement of benefits. They provide applications, help applicants complete them, verify the information to be submitted, and also oversee the disbursement of unemployment benefits once approved. In addition to in-person visits, most state labor offices allow for the filing of unemployment claims online.
