When navigating unemployment claims, there are many forms for your company to sort through. Trying to discern the most important can be challenging, leading you to miss crucial information or deadlines. Instead of leaving it to chance, remember the following pieces of paperwork.
A major goal of all employers is to find employees who will remain loyal and dedicated to their company. Unfortunately, with job hopping becoming a more popular trend, this kind of loyalty isn’t always easy to detect or hire. Research shows an employee who’s drawn to your company because of what you do instead of the money offered or room for growth, are more likely to stay for the long-term, so here are a few ways to find loyal employees, starting at their interview.
You want to effectively manage your unemployment claims, but sometimes that’s easier said than done. You don’t have an employee solely devoted to them and missing a deadline isn’t unusual. You’re aware you might be paying more than you should, but you can’t think of a better alternative. Hiring someone is out of the question and you aren’t sure of a software where you don’t have control over your data.
When a former employee files for unemployment insurance, it’s usually because they believe they have a case that shows their firing wasn’t their fault. In certain situations, like layoffs, this is true, but other claims have room for a company to contest. One example is an attendance-based claim. The worker you let go might claim they were fired for being chronically late or not showing up, but they weren’t aware of a policy that prohibited such actions and were never formally reprimanded. When this happens, the easiest path to success is ensuring you have a system in place.
As a refresher, unemployment insurance (UI) is financed through the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) and the State Unemployment Tax Act (SUTA). Employers pay annually to the IRS using the Form 940, and the money is kept in a reserve to pay employees who are let go at no fault of their own.
As fall rolls around, many companies are approaching the end of the actual, or fiscal year. Budgets are finalized, reports are approved, and in the back of your mind you’re aware of something else on the horizon: performance reviews.
