The Pennsylvania Unemployment Compensation program is designed to ensure that employees will be able to receive some financial compensation in the event that they lose their jobs through no fault of their own. Unemployment Compensation is temporary and is only provided to unemployed workers who meet certain requirements. The program is administered by divisions within the Department of Labor & Industry.
The Pennsylvania Unemployment Benefits Pamphlet provides employees with pertinent information about this program and the benefits that they may be eligible to receive if they lose their jobs.
Employers should make information about this program available to their employees in the form of this Pennsylvania Unemployment Benefits Pamphlet.
