"Я не є безробітна." for "I am not unemployed." is correct as well.

    Perhaps, but this way of speaking would sound less natural in Ukraine. This course teaches Ukrainian as spoken in Ukraine.

    Can you say "I am employed"? I realize that the translation is not as literal.

      I’d say «Я ма́ю робо́ту» ‘I have a job’.

      If you really need a single adjective, you can say «я пра̀цевлашто́вана» (or «я пра̀цевлашто́ваний», if the speaker is male), but this sounds too formal.
