LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- With the return of the work search requirement, Nevada's unemployment offices says it has received a significant number of JobConnect form submissions and many emails requesting additional information.

The department on Monday issued a clarification: Claimants should fill out the web form requesting assistance on the JobConnect website only if they need help with their job search.

"This is not a mandatory requirement; claimants would only use this form to request one-on-one assistance with job training or work search," said a press release from the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.

Claimants can view work search requirement FAQs here or contact DETR’s call centers:
