LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The state unemployment department reports its website is still experiencing a few errors when it comes to accepting Unemployment Insurance claims.

Thursday, the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) sent out a note stating previous issues affecting some UI claimants were still occurring.

The department also says it continues to work to resolve the problems as quickly as possible and expects the issue to be resolved in time for next week’s claim filing.

When it comes to PUA claimants, DETR said as of Thursday morning those claims can be filed without any issues.

Several viewers have informed 13 Action News about not being able to file a claim for the past four days and the unemployment office posted a generic response on its website Wednesday stating it was working hard to get the issue fixed.

There have been numerous issues with unemployment filings since the start of the pandemic.
