MARYLAND — The Maryland Department of Labor issued a 12-page letter in response to concerns brought up in a joint Senate committee's hearing on unemployment issues earlier this month.

In the letter, the MD Dept. of Labor said they are working around the clock to ensure that all claimants receive the unemployment benefits they are entitled to as quickly as possible.

The Department stated they feel the frustration and desperation from so many Marylanders in need of assistance and are listening and acting upon feedback from customers daily, in order to further improve systems and processes to better handle the unprecedented volume they are faced with.
