Offices Closed for State Holiday - Independence Day, July 4, 2023

June 28, 2023

The Vermont Department of Labor offices, including the UI Claimant Assistance Center and local Job Centers, will be closed in observance of Independence Day on Tuesday, July 4, 2023. The Department will resume regular business hours on Wednesday July 5, 2023.

  • If you file your claim online, you will still be able to do so but will experience a minor delay in payment due to the holiday.
  • The UI Claimant Assistance Center will also be closed on Tuesday, July 4, and will reopen Wednesday, July 5, for regular business hours. Claimants should expect high call volume on Wednesday morning with longer than usual wait times. To avoid long wait times, you are encouraged to call either later in the day, or later in the week. If you need to contact the UI Claimant Assistance Center to file your weekly claim, you have until Friday at 4pm to file.
  • Local Job Center locations in Vermont will be closed on Tuesday, July 4, and will reopen for regular business hours on Wednesday, July 5. Individuals may contact the Workforce Development team through the Job Seeker Inquiry form, or by calling a local job center directly.
