Unemployment in Nevada

If you have recently lost your job, it is paramount you act quickly to pick yourself up and get back on your feet. We believe in you!

Additionally, you may be entitled to receiving unemployment benefits. We recommend that you check your eligibility on the Nevada unemployment website. At the time of this writing, you must file your claim online. The Nevada website has a series of videos to guide you through the process should you get stuck.

Filing your claim

If you are no longer working, you and you alone have the responsibility of filing for your unemployment benefits. Without filing for these benefits, the state will not know that you are no longer working and cannot provide you unemployment assistance should you be eligible.

To file a successful claim, you need to prove that you did not engage in misconduct and were either laid off or had to quit your job because of some exceptional circumstance like a boss who sexually harassed you or unsafe working conditions.

Please refer to the regulations of the administrative body handling unemployment, the Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation.

After filing your claim, start looking for jobs.

After filing your claim, you have to look for work, which is something you should be doing anyway. You can look to Craigslist, Amazon Jobs, local newspapers and magazines, and your friends and family. DETR and the unemployment office also have resources to help you find your next job.

While looking for your next job will help you get back on your feet, DETR requires you to be able, available, and actively seeking work. Or in other words, you can't collect unemployment checks and play videogames all day.

What happens if I am denied unemployment benefits?

If you are denied unemployment benefits, you have the chance to appeal that decision if you do so within the allotted timeframe, which as of the time of this writing, is 11 days. The officer that issued your unemployment decision will have the most up-to-date information about filing an appeal.
