Losing a member of your team always has implications no matter the reason they’re gone. While you can count on needing to restructure to ensure all their responsibilities are being taken care of, you might not know when to expect a former employee to file for unemployment insurance.
If you’ve tried to track unemployment claims on your own, you’re probably aware of how challenging it can be. Laws and amounts vary by state with laws evolving regularly. A missed deadline can cause overpayments and lead to future issues. Just when you think you’ve got a good system in place and a handle on things, everything changes at once just when you’re forced to lay off a large number of workers.
