Overview

State Unemployment Insurance notices have recently been received. Often, because of other more important issues, these notices are ignored. Yet, they provide critical information about the organization.In fact, it is one of the early assessment components of HR audits. Understanding the key elements of your unemployment insurance experience can provide your organization with important information about its financial and human resource management decision making process.

While 2020 state UI tax rates are lower than they have been in a number of years, many employers still have significant liabilities. And in light of the depression level unemployment caused by the coronavirus, unemployment tax rates and liabilities will increase drastically in 2021 and 2022.

Why Should You Attend

Unfortunately, UI tax liabilities are only the most obvious risk created by employee separations and unemployment insurance claims. Unemployment insurance claims often expose organizations to other potential liabilities: from wage and hour violations for misclassifying independent contractors to providing plaintiffs with discovery opportunities in other employment litigation settings.

Thus, effective management of your organization’s unemployment insurance experience can provide you with the opportunity to improve your talent management results, improve your hiring and onboarding processes, enhance your performance management and discipline procedures, and reduce your exposure to discrimination and wrongful discharge claims. Effective UI management allows your organization to use UI metrics to assess human capital risks, measure supervisor and manager performance, more accurately allocate resources, and have a positive impact on the bottom line.

This webinar provides an update on federal and state UI issues, discusses 2020 and future state tax liabilities, assesses the risks and costs associated with UI taxes and benefits, and discusses effective UI tax management and cost control techniques.
