Unemployed Worker Webcasts
The Agency is making available several webcasts for unemployed workers and employers. This area is called UI Tube, with "UI" referring to unemployment insurance.
The webcasts are designed to inform our customers about Agency programs and services, and in some cases serve as guides or tutorials.
You can find links and more information about these webcasts below. Please check back here occasionally for new UI Tube releases.
