Vermont is reintroducing a “work search” requirement for unemployment benefits.

That means anyone living in Bennington County, or the state, who files for unemployment, will have to actively be looking for a new job.

These guidelines are returning the week of May 9. There are some exemptions including those that are in quarantine for COVID-19, those who have lost childcare, or those that have a child learning remotely that needs to be cared for.
