Description

2017 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 current state UI tax rates are generally lower than they had been during the recession, many employers may still have significant liabilities. But UI tax liabilities are only the most obvious risk created by employee separations and unemployment insurance claims. Unfortunately, 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
