Thank you for agreeing that this is outrageous. But no, I actually am providing accurate info. To further substantiate it, I am copying the relevant section of this Act below and then will provide you with a link to the entire text of the Act so that you can verify for yourself.
Here is the relevant section of the Act...(Note (2) below.)

OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S STATUS AS UNEMPLOYED

announcement for an employee for any job that includes-

unemployed disqualifies the individual for any employment opportunity; or

or hire an individual for any employment opportunity based on that individual's
