Employees Refusing Suitable Work - Important Note

April 27, 2021

From the Department of Labor and Industry:

If you have individuals refusing suitable work and claiming unemployment benefits, you must report that on either the paperwork we send to you or on our webform created for this purpose: https://www.uc.pa.gov/forms/Pages/UC-1921W-Refusal-of-Suitable-Work.aspx

Please keep in mind that we are experiencing historically high volumes of work and requests. If you report an eligibility issue to us, you may not receive an outcome for a period of time. It does not mean we did not receive your request or that we will not work on it as soon as we can, so please do not send second or third requests. Duplicate requests only tie up resources more and prevent us from better serving you and other employers.

For more information on situations where claimants may refuse work and still be granted benefits, visit: https://www.uc.pa.gov/COVID-19/Pages/UC-COVID19-FAQs.aspx
