Due to the Memorial Day holiday, our offices will be closed Monday, May 29. We will have limited staff processing claims and making outbound calls during this time. Because of the holiday, the Unemployment Insurance program will not be accepting inbound calls, benefits may be delayed by one day, and claimants may not be able to see their claims online until May 31. Thank you.
Language updates coming soon
We are committed to ongoing language access improvements and will be updating this site in the near future. We will be adding Amharic and Traditional Chinese and removing Romanian, Khmer, Hmong, Mien, Chuukese, and Marshallese based on feedback from our customers. Thank you.

The Oregon Employment Department and the Oregon Law Center announced two settlement agreements. The first agreement follows a class action lawsuit, filed by 14 Oregonians who waited weeks or months for unemployment benefits. The lawsuit sought to resolve issues related to timeliness challenges and language barriers faced by Oregonians filing for unemployment benefits through the Employment Department.
The second settlement agreement follows a lawsuit with the goal to resolve issues related to Oregonians filing for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance who were found to be ineligible due to submitting no, or insufficient, proof of employment. All settlement reports can be found here.
