Over 250,000 Tennesseans Applied for Unemployment in the last 3 Weeks

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a major impact on Tennessee’s unemployment claims.
According to the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the state is projected to pay more than 100,000 claims this week. Initial claims spiked to more than 250,000 in the last three-week period.
The state will extend unemployment benefits to people who are quarantined by a doctor for COVID-19. They’ll also suspend certain regulations to speed up payment time.
The department does not know when the extra $600 per week in benefits will go into effect, mostly because computers have to be reprogrammed.
