The Directorate of Labour directs to job seekers in reduced employment ratio that they are required to deregister from the unemployment registry if their employment has been terminated and/or if they are returning back to previous employment ratio.
Job seekers are able to deregister via ‘My Pages’ and The Directorate of Labour has sent out a message and instructions to this group regarding deregistration.
The Directorate of Labour emphasises that deregistration will not prevent payments of unemployment benefits if they have not yet been paid for the month of April.
