The Department of Employment Services has announced that offices in Kiryat Malachi, Kiryat Gat, Yavne and Ofakim will be closed today. There will be no penalties for non-reporting, and all benefits will remain in place.
People seeking employment who live within a 7-kilometer range of the Gaza border are only required to report once during the month of August in order to maintain their benefits. Those who fall within this category can report anytime they can through the month's end, and not per appointment as previously done.
The Department of Employment Services offices in both Ashdod and Ashkelon are open to the public, and those seeking work only have to report one time to the end of August in order to maintain their benefits.
