Effects of Unemployment Insurance Work-Search Requirements: The Maryland Experiment.

Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v56 n1 p3-22 Oct 2002
Evaluation of changes in Maryland's unemployment insurance (UI) program found that duration and amount of UI receipt were reduced by requiring additional employer contacts or a job-search workshop; these requirements did not affect employment and earnings. However, eliminating employer contact requirements increased UI receipt and subsequent earnings, suggesting that delayed exit from UI improved job matches. (Contains 18 references.) (SK)
