Employer paid unemployment insurance taxes and costs, once a nuisance, have increased dramatically in many states in recent years. For some employers’, UI tax liabilities have increased by more than 300 percent and now have a significant impact on the bottom line.
Higher UI tax liabilities are just most obvious risk created by employee separations and unemployment insurance claims. Unemployment insurance claims increasingly 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.
Effective management of an organization’s unemployment insurance provides the organization with the opportunity to improve its talent management results, improve its hiring and on boarding processes, enhance its performance management and discipline procedures, and reduce its exposure to discrimination and wrongful discharge claims. Effective UI management allows organizations 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.
Join Ronald Adler for this power packed session to get an update on federal and state UI issues, assess the risks and costs associated with UI taxes and benefits, and discuss the effective UI tax management and cost control techniques.
