The Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) has announced that in order to conduct regular system updates, the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) system (EmployNV.gov) and the Unemployment Insurance (UI) system (ui.nv.gov) will be temporarily offline Jan. 16.

TIMELINE: Nevada Dept. of Employment and handling of pandemic unemployment claims

The PUA site will be offline tomorrow at 4 until 6 a.m., and the UI site will be offline tomorrow at 1 until 7 p.m.

During these times, the sites get very few visitors, making it the optimal time to make regular updates. During this brief window, individuals will not be able to file claims or access the resource materials.

Filers are encouraged to visit the sites after 6 a.m. tomorrow morning and 7 p.m. tomorrow night respectively.

This maintenance will not impact the DETR and JobConnect sites.
