New Mexico reinstates work search requirement for people on unemployment

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions is reinstating a rule that requires people on unemployment to actively search for a job.

The rule was suspended last year due to the uncertainties caused by the pandemic. However, it will go back into effect Sunday, May 9.

People collecting unemployment benefits must contact at least two employers each week.
