Learn about the current health (and severe financial challenges) of the states’ Unemployment Insurance programs and review the recent and very dramatic changes that have occurred with unemployment claims management. Understand the new federal and state UI Integrity legislation, and explore the new ‘”SIDES” (State Information Data Exchange System) and learn how it impacts employers.
To start and to put UI in context, we will consider the overall health of the UI system, and UI taxation trends. We will then have a basic review of how unemployment claims financially impact an employer.
Afterwards, we will review the important Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2011 (TAAEA), focusing on the Unemployment Insurance Integrity Rules included within this legislation. We will take a careful look at “Section 252” of the new TAAEA legislation, which compels states to charge employers for overpayment of UI benefits when they are at fault. We will also look at the new and pending state UI Integrity legislation and discuss compliance rules, potential penalty and enforcement.
Then, we will introduce you to the new State Information Data Exchange System (“SIDES”) program. We will discuss what SIDES is, and how it impacts employers and/or their third party unemployment claims administrators.
Finally, amidst the myriad of changes and challenges, we will overview opportunities for employers to enact best practices to improve compliance and drive tax savings. We will go through the “Top 10” steps you can put in place to help deliver best practices for your Unemployment Claims Management including key areas such as progressive discipline, benefit charge audit, "front loaded" claims, and key unemployment claims management metrics.
