Residents can reach out to one of their 3 state representatives to request an inquiry on their unemployment claim from the NJ Department of Labor, which usually takes 2-14 business days to get a response. Leave a voicemail if you can’t get someone on the phone, and they will get back to you at their earliest convenience.
