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.
