Changes being made to how to file for unemployment

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - An overhaul of florida's unemployment laws starts Monday.

Initial unemployment claimants will now be required to file claims over the internet. Those filing will also have to take an online skill assessment test and provide proof that they file at least five job per week.

The changes to the existing program are being made to help save the state money, reduce the unemployment tax on employers, and help more Floridians return to work
