Clauses 1 and 2, Article 52 of Law on Employment 2013 provide for notification of job seeking as follows:

1. While on unemployment allowance, monthly, a worker shall directly notify his/her job seeking to the employment service center of the locality where he/she currently receives unemployment allowance, except the following cases:

a/ He/she is sick or on maternity leave or has an accident as certified in writing by a competent health establishment prescribed by the law on medical examination and treatment;

b/ Force majeure cases.

2. The worker shall notify the case specified at Point a or b, Clause 1 of this Article to the employment service center of the locality where he/she currently receives unemployment allowance.

Clauses 1 and 2, Article 53 of the 2013 Law on Employment provide for suspension and continue enjoyment of unemployment benefits as follows:

1. Persons whoare under unemployment allowance will be suspended from receiving unemployment benefits if they fail to monthly notify their job seeking under Article 52 of this Law.

2. Workers who are suspended from receiving unemployment allowance may continue receiving it under the decisions on unemployment allowance receipt if the receipt duration has not yet expired and they monthly notify their job seeking under Article 52 of this Law.
