Please be aware that if you have lost your job due to your employer shutting down temporarily because of the flood, you are eligible to file for unemployment compensation. According to the TN Department of Labor and Workforce Development, your claim to collect benefits will not count against your employer’s experience rating. You may file an unemployment insurance claim by going to www.tennesseeanytime.org/labor or by calling 1-877-813-0950.
Note: all calls are being routed through Chattanooga while the Nashville office is closed. Call volume is high. Applying online may be your best option for getting through the process quickly.
