Gianforte Calls for Employers to Notify Government of Missed Interviews

HELENA, Mont. (NMB) – Governor Greg Gianforte has announced a new program which asks employers to notify the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) of unemployment insurance claimants that miss scheduled job interviews.

According to Gianforte, employers throughout Montana have complained about job candidates not appearing for previously scheduled job interviews.

Gianforte says employers who submit information may be contacted by fraud investigators for more information, but the outcome of the audit will remain between the claimant and the department.

This comes after Gianforte recently ended the state’s participation in expanded unemployment benefits.

Montana’s unemployment rate was at 3.7 percent for June, lower than the overall U.S. rate for June of 5.9 percent.
