MONTPELIER — The Vermont Department of Labor says that unemployment checks are being delayed this week.
Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan says the checks were supposed to be in the mail by 3:30 p.m. Thursday, but a “significant error” was discovered and the checks had to be reissued.
Most recipients of unemployment insurance checks should now receive them Saturday, although some could be delayed until Monday.
People who receive unemployment payments electronically are not affected by the problem.
Officials did not describe the problem.
