CARSON CITY (KTNV) — The Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation says the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) system was experiencing systemic issues on Thursday.

DETR reported the system errors were causing the site to throttle or slow down, as of Thursday evening.

Representatives say the site was up, and claimants were able to log in but those already on may experience longer response times when accessing new areas or pages on the website.
