The Vermont Department of Labor is still seeing problems that are preventing some Vermonters from filing unemployment claims. Last week, Vermont’s antiquated unemployment insurance system ran into technical issues where people did not have a link online to file their weekly claims. Many waited hours on the phone to file their claims. State leaders said they resolved many of the issues last week, but many people are still running into problems filing. Vt. Labor Commissioner Michael Harrington described a cascading effect in the unemployment system. The commissioner stressed that people will be able to backdate their claims for last week and this week.
