Michigan Amends Its UI Law on Numerous Topics

CCH (02/29/12)

Michigan recently made several changes to its Employment Security Act dealing with unemployment insurance. Among other things, the act now requires those seeking unemployment benefits to be actively seeking work and details how they must report the progress of their employment search.
