I. POLICY AND GENERAL STATEMENT

However, certain conditions must exist before a claimant is eligible to receive benefits as determined by the Texas Workforce Commission.
Human Resources is responsible for processing unemployment claims.

Failure to provide a timely and accurate response to the unemployment claim may result in the acceptance of the claim regardless of its validity.
