  • Individuals who cannot work may apply for unemployment insurance. Please encourage them to complete the online application as the phone lines are swamped with calls.

Our WorkSource Centers in The Dalles, Redmond, Bend and Klamath Falls are open and services are available. We encourage job seekers to call their local center or connect online if at all possible.
