Take Note! Local UI Claimant Outreach Update - July
Workforce Solutions Southeast is tracking local data related to outreach and assistance to Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits claimants. Many workers are back on the UI rolls due to the resurgence of COVID-19 in Texas and the state's scaling back of allowable business activity since late June. Workforce Solutions continues to help UI Claimants seeking employment in this environment get back to work. Cumulative data for July indicates the following:

3,049 UI Claimants Outreached by WF staff

1,005 UI Claimants referred to one or more jobs

54 UI Claimants hired as of July 20, 2020

(Employer hire data may lag as much as three months; staff will continue to follow-up and update employment related to claimant outreach.)

As of July 17, 2020 these are the five local industries with the highest claimant count: Limited Service Restaurants, Oil and Gas Pipeline Construction, Full Service Restaurants, All-other Non-Residential Trade Contractors, and Industrial Building Construction. Please continue to visit SETWORKS.ORG for updates to Claimant information, UI rates, and COVID-19 Information and Resources.

A World-Class Competitive Workforce for Southeast Texas.
