LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska's unemployment website, NEworks, is back online following an outage impacting the site's vendor, Geographic Solutions Inc. 

Among multiple states impacted, Nebraska's site was the first to come back online. GSI has also restored other state websites, with more to come. 

"Although we understand this has caused disruption for unemployment claimants and other users, taking the site offline was an important measure to protect the data of working Nebraskans," said Commissioner of Labor John H. Albin. 

NDOL said they will ensure that unemployment claimants are able to receive the benefits for which they are eligible. The agency is prioritizing payments for weeks already claimed. Back payments will be issued to all eligible claimants. 

NDOL said filers should check their account for status updates.
