In a story first seen on News 10, state unemployment offices have been dealing with backlogs and lack of trained personnel to help those filing unemployment.
But state officials say by Jan. 1, most of those problems should be taken care of.
Noelle Clark, Director of The Department of Consumer & Industry Services (C.I.S.), says that her offices have found the technical glitch hampering the often-busy hotline.
She also says that C.I.S. will begin testing Internet fillings by next week.
