How to Reopen an Existing Louisiana Unemployment Claim

It may become necessary for you to reopen an existing Louisiana unemployment claim if you suspend or cancel your unemployment because you found a job, and then later became unemployed again.

Generally, you can reopen an existing unemployment claim by simply filing a weekly certifcation online or by phone -- just like you did every week when you receiving unemployment previously.

In some cases, it may be necessary to speak to an unemployment counselor or start the process all over again in order to reopen an existing unemployment claim in Louisiana. If this is the case, contact your unemployment counselor to get exact instructions on how to proceed.

Laid off after 11 yrs, on unemployment for 2 1/2 months, accepted job offer, working 3 days now and seeing/learning that new job responsibilitie s/expectations are much more than what was explained during interview. I am also realizing that Im lacking in skills that are required to do these task. If this continues to be the case and I quit/resign would I be able to reinstate my original unemployment claim? What if new employer lets me go for not being able to perform job requirements?
