         Claims that are phoned in to the commission will be backdated when the HiRE system resumes operation.

         Upgrades will include access for online appeals of unemployment insurance decisions and access to real-time claim updates.

         During the upgrade, Louisiana employers will still have uninterrupted access to the online wage portal to pay unemployment insurance taxes.
