§21A-2A-3. Application for employment by eligible unemployed
person; forms and notice.
Any person who is an eligible unemployed person as defined
in section two of this article may apply for employment in the
emergency employment supplemental matching program by making
application with the commissioner on forms made available by the
commissioner at each local job service office: Provided, That
nothing contained in this section shall be construed to permit
funds under this program to be used to interfere or hinder
existing employment or employment agreements including, but not
limited to, collective bargaining agreements. Funds may not be
used in instances where work stoppages resulting from labor
management disputes are in effect.
The form furnished by the commissioner shall provide for
listing the eligible unemployed person's prior work experience,
skills, educational history, and such other information as the
commissioner deems necessary for the purposes of this article.
Priority for employment under this program shall be given to
eligible unemployed persons who are heads of households.
The commissioner, within fifteen days after the effective
date of legislation appropriating funds for the implementation of
this article, shall cause to be published a statewide notice of
the availability of such application forms under the emergency
employment supplemental matching program.
