Go to your local UI office this week and bring the letter with you... tell them you are there to register for work as the letter says.

You are putting yourself in the computer system as available for job referrals and what not... nothing more. It is a requirement to receive UI benefits though, just like work searches... so you have to go.

I drew GA unemployment for 14 months from late 2009 till mid 2011 and I never once had to work 32 hours a week for the state of Georgia. I think you are either confused or misinformed. Just go to the office with the letter you got and they'll take care of you. It's just paperwork.

Or the news story was misleading.

It wasn't so long ago in AZ, that the news was saying that "the senate passed a law to require drug testing for UI claimants." What it didn't say is that it was the state senate that passed that bill, it was still a bill, it had to passed by the state house, signed by the governor, and was already being challenged by the US Department of Labor because it exceed the drug testing requirements of Federal law (ie provided less protection to claimants) and the test had to be paid for by the claimaint (hidden tax).

As of now, the issue is dead.

Don't believe anything the news tells you until you read the details with your own eyes.
