The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development has resources available for employees seeking information related to:
Unemployment - the fastest and most efficient way to file an unemployment claim is to go to www.Jobs4TN.gov. Due to the high volume of claims because of the COVID-19 emergency, if you file with any other method you could significantly delay the processing of your claim.
Finding work - resources are now available through the Tennessee Talent Exchange powered by Jobs4TN.
Emergency Cash Assistance - emergency cash assistance may be available for certain families that lost employment due to COVID-19. Information and the application are available here.
