Kansas Unemployment Office

The Kansas Department of Labor assists in the prevention of economic insecurity through unemployment insurance and workers compensation, by providing a fair and efficient venue to exercise employer and employee rights, and by helping employers promote a safe work environment for their employees. This facilitates compliance with labor laws while enabling advancement of the economic well-being of the citizens of Kansas.

The Division of Employment Security, under the Kansas Department of Labor, is responsible for verifying eligibility for unemployment benefits, distributing benefits to those that qualify, and collecting taxes from employers that fund the program. This is accomplished through two separate units: Benefits and Tax.
