Governor Holcomb reinstates work search requirement for those receiving unemployment benefits

People on unemployment in Indiana are going to have to look for work. Governor Eric Holcomb said on Monday he is reinstating the work search requirement in the state. Indiana waived the work search requirement during the worst of the coronavirus outbreak last year. Businesses across the state say they need workers, but they cannot find them because too many people are getting extra unemployment benefits. The governor says he’ll issue an order requiring people to apply for jobs later this week.
