Vermont Unemployment Contact Information 

Vermont Unemployment Office

The unemployment office in Vermont distributes critical unemployment insurance (UI) benefits to qualified residents of the state. The Vermont Department of Labor (DOL) oversees the unemployment offices in VT and is responsible for processing claims for UI from citizens (or legal non-citizens). Workers should contact the unemployment office in Vermont if they face a loss of work due to no fault of his or her own. For example, victims of mass layoffs may be eligible for UI and should inquire about unemployment information like how to apply for unemployment benefits. Temporary, seasonal and dislocated workers as well as discharged members of the military may also be eligible according to the DOL. Information about unemployment eligibility is the most important data new claimants should understand. Those denied benefits may be missing crucial unemployment information such as comprehensive work history or the reason for the joblessness. As a claim moves along the process, more details, such as rate of compensation and required actions by approved applicants will become clear. The DOL will also assist approved claimants with job placement opportunities through Workforce Development’s career resource centers. Offices will provide information about unemployment services to claimants who are having difficulty rejoining the workforce.
