COURTLAND, AL (WAFF) -

The Alabama Department of Labor said employees of the International Paper Mill in Courtland may be eligible for additional benefits.

That included current and former employees who worked at the plant. A petition filed on behalf of the workers was certified by the U.S. Department of Labor on February 6 after the department found the workers may have become unemployed as a result of increased imports.

If workers have exhausted their benefits, they may be eligible for additional weekly benefits equal to the amount they were receiving under other programs.

The Alabama Department of Labor Commissioner said those who are eligible will be notified in the coming weeks.
