What can I do if my employer fails to provide the information necessary for me to file an unemployment claim?

Question Details:

I was recently laid off due to lack of work. My former employer provided me with a separation notice but he didn't put his employer account number on it. I took this notice to the unemployment office. They told me that I need to get this account number from my former employer to be able to get unemployment compensation. I have called him several times to get this but he keeps telling me he can't find this number and will call me back when he finds it. I need to have some sort of income while I am looking for a new job. Is there anything I can do legally if he does not provide me with this number? He signed the separation notice so shouldn't he be obligated to complete the form in its entirety?
