Governor Lee’s Executive Order No. 15 modified the job search requirement for weekly certifications. The Executive Order temporarily allows for work search requirements to be modified so that an unemployment insurance claimant can satisfy requirements simply by creating and maintaining their reemployment plan, creating and maintaining a searchable and active resume, completing a career profile in Jobs4TN.gov, or any other good-faith reemployment strategy reasonably expected to result in reemployment after the health emergency ends. These modifications are only applicable to those who cannot return to work due to the COVID related exemptions already shared in other guidance.
