Can I file for unemployment benefits if I am impacted by COVID-19?

The Nevada Department of Employment Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) governs unemployment eligibility and determinations of benefit payments. The District will respond to all unemployment requests received with factual information about the current circumstances but final eligibility and benefit payment determinations will be made by DETR. Given the dynamic nature of this situation, if additional information becomes available related to unemployment insurance benefits we will share it with employees right away.
