Extended Work Search Waiver

If you have a date to return to work that is more than eight weeks from your last day worked, but within 16 weeks, your employer must submit a written request to the Division of Employment Security Director for an extended work search waiver. The request should be on company letterhead and must include: the names of the workers being laid off, Social Security Number, last day worked, recall date, and the employer’s unemployment account number. The employer should sign and date the request, and fax to 573-751-5040.
