SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Employment Department is having computer issues since yesterday after experiencing a power outage at their main facility.

The ODD’s online system is offline, and claimants won’t be able to file claims bcause of the outage.

The Unemployment Insurance Call Center will not be able to take any calls until power is restored, and no unemployment checks were issued last night because of the power failure. There is no estimated time for the system to be back up and running.
