Dept. of Labor launches system to improve unemployment insurance

Dept. of Labor launches system to improve unemployment insurance

ATLANTA -- The Georgia Department of Labor recently rolled out a new electronic system designed to increase efficiency and reduce costs of operating the state's unemployment insurance program.

Georgia is one of 10 states to adopt the State Information Data Exchange (SIDES) E-response. It allows employers to respond promptly to the Department of Labor when a former worker files an unemployment claim, according to state Labor Commissioner Mark Butler.

"This new online capability is part of our continuing effort to make the Georgia Department of Labor more user-friendly and technologically up-to-date," Butler said in a statement. "This will significantly speed communications between the labor department and employers. At the same time, it will help prevent some overpayments to people who might not be eligible for benefits, saving us from having to go back and try to collect money from ineligible applicants."

Community Foods - $1.79/lb Chicken On Sale Now

Community Foods - $1.79/lb Chicken On Sale Now
Have you heard of Community Foods?

Last month I placed my first order through Community Foods.  It’s actually based in Cumming, GA but they offer deliveries throughout Metro Atlanta.  The overall concept is that they sell 3 products – Chicken (hormone free, no steroids, etc.), Ground Beef (all natural, no hormones, etc.) and Tilapia.  Now my ideal Tilapia would be wild-caught, this tilapia is farm-raised.  But it’s really “pretty” (ha!  that always sounds so funny to say about food).

Right, now chicken just became available for delivery.  Click here to learn more about Community Foods and their $1.79/lb chicken.
