Unemployment Insurance: What Employers Need to Know Moving Forward

Unemployment Insurance, often overlooked, can provide critical information about the organization. In fact, it is one of the early assessments of components in 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 2019 state UI tax rates are lower than they were during the recession and are likely to stay that way in 2020, what about 2021? UI tax liabilities are the most obvious risk created by employee separations and unemployment insurance claims. Unfortunately, unemployment insurance claims also increasing organizations’ exposure to other potential liabilities: from wage and hour violations for misclassifying independent contractors to providing plaintiffs with discovery opportunities in other employment litigation settings.

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.

Please join Ronald Adler as he provides an update on federal and state UI issues, discusses 2020-2021 state tax liabilities, assesses the risks and costs associated with UI taxes and benefits, and discusses effective UI tax management and cost control techniques.
