Unemployment virtual town hall this afternoon

HARRISBURG—Pennsylvania workers can ask their job search and unemployment compensation questions today during the state Department of Labor & Industry’s 21st virtual town hall from 1 to 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct.15.

During the event, Director of L&I’s Bureau of Workforce Partnerships and Operations Ruben Pachay, will provide an update on the virtual job search and reskilling services and will be joined by Director of the Office of Unemployment Compensation Benefits Policy Susan Dickinson, who will answer questions about unemployment compensation.

A livestream will be online at https://access.live/PAlabor. Those without internet access can listen by calling 1-833-380-0719, however phone lines are limited so L&I asks that they be reserved for individuals who need them.

Individuals livestreaming the town hall can submit typed questions that will be read to the UC expert by a moderator.

To protect participants’ personal confidential information, detailed answers about individual claim questions cannot be answered during the town hall.

More information on career services, reskilling opportunities, and unemployment compensation is available on L&I’s website, Facebook or Twitter.
