ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) Indiana's WorkOne centers are bracing for an increase in traffic when they begin holding in-person meetings with people who've been receiving unemployment benefits for at least four weeks.

The meetings are required under a new Indiana law that took effect Oct. 1. Department of Workforce Development spokesman Joe Frank tells The Herald Bulletin that the law is designed to crack down on fraud and help people get back in the job market.

Anderson WorkOne office manager Greg Richmond says he's concerned about the number of people who might be coming through the office when the meetings start Wednesday.

Recipients of jobless benefits will be required to prove they've searched for three jobs. They also can get pointers on resumes and interview techniques.
