Finalized data from the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) show initial claims for unemployment insurance (UI) totaled 10,620 for the week ending June 13, down 128 claims, or 1.2 percent, compared to last week’s total of 10,748.
This is the seventh consecutive week of declines in regular initial claims.
Through the week ending June 13, there have been 528,545 initial claims filed in 2020, 506,893 of which have come in the last fourteen weeks.
Continued claims, which represent the current number of insured unemployed workers filing weekly for unemployment insurance benefits, fell to 313,009. This is a decline from the previous week of 22,173 claims, or 6.6 percent, and likely reflects some claimants returning to work.
