Contesting unemployment insurance claims.
Whether it’s downsizing and layoffs, a resignation,
or something more specific, losing an employee
can create stress and an unpleasant workplace
environment. Depending on the situation, what
follows can be equally stressful. Any time a
person becomes jobless, he or she can file for
unemployment benefits. However, not every former
employee is entitled to receive unemployment
benefits—and it’s up to the employer against which
the claim is filed to prove that a former employee
should not receive them.
Contesting unfair unemployment claims requires good paperwork, excellent timing and an understanding of the entire process. Our short eBook will help you cover all the bases.

Nonprofits have options.
Nonprofit organizations are not required by law
to participate in the unemployment insurance tax
programs as offered by the state in which they
operate. However, they are required to pay for
unemployment claims, so those that choose not to
participate in the state unemployment insurance tax
programs must reimburse the state for any claims
paid by the state. If a 501(c)(3) organization does not
participate in the state unemployment tax program
and has no claims of unemployment filed against
it, it doesn’t have to pay any money to the state.
501(c) Agencies Trust
501(c) Agencies Trust is a national organization created by a dozen nonprofits in 1982 that helps nonprofit organizations leave the state unemployment tax system and become reimbursing employers.
