Alabama's Unemployed to Get Help on State Holidays

State Industrial Relations Director Tom Surtees says the state's
two unemployment compensation call centers will remain open for the
two upcoming state holidays. That's Monday, when the state honors
Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert E. Lee, and Feb. 16, which is
Presidents Day.

Surtees said Thursday the call centers are staying open because
of the increased volume of calls and because the holidays are on
Mondays, which is a peak time for filing unemployment claims.

People filing claims can call 1-866-234-5382. People checking on
existing claims can call 1-800-361-4524.
