Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Department of Workforce Development announced last week it’s caught up on unemployment claims. One local woman’s claim however is still pending.

Diane Dorman is a substitute teacher. Her line of work has not been reliable with schools going virtual to available jobs disappearing after a teacher tests negative for COVID-19.

Dorman has filed for unemployment periodically since March. Her claims from October 24 through the rest of 2020 are still pending.

She says this process has been frustrating.

Dorman said, “They had a hold on it that was taken off, and so all they have to do was process it and that takes up to two weeks to process. But a month later, I still didn’t get my payment.”

Dorman has recently accepted a more permanent position with the school district of Cadott but says the unemployment payments from her pending claims are needed to help pay the bills.

We reached out to the department of workforce development for comment, but it was unable to fulfill our request.
