Info on Unemployment

Yates is taking steps to register hourly employees for unemployment benefits with the state of Tennessee and Mississippi.

For Yates hourly employees in Tennessee– Employees should not file individual claims for unemployment, as this will likely delay processing. Once the state processes the information from Yates and creates a claim, the employee will receive an email with a hyperlink for the employee to certify the claim. The state encourages employees to certify on Sunday; however, employees can certify anytime between Sunday and Friday following the week of unemployment. The link below is weekly certification for TN unemployment.
