Unemployment Claims Management
The unemployment insurance claims process requires careful management and oversight. To ensure the highest level of service and support, each employer is assigned a specific U.I.S. claims manager who is an expert in the regulations and bureaucracy associated with unemployment claims.
Your claims manager will become familiar with your business’ culture and policies, and handle the day-to-day administration of your unemployment claims program. Personal contact with the claim representative ensures you as the employer have a full understanding of the issues for each unemployment claim.
Each unemployment claim is fully investigated to obtain facts to help meet employment security statutory requirements.
Claims protests are individually created and unique, in order to reflect the separation information of each claim.
Claims and determinations are processed in a timely manner with a sense of urgency.
Our online claims management tool allows for quick and secure file transfers, real-time claim status and reporting.
Unemployment Appeal Hearings
An unemployment appeal hearing is intimidating to most employers. Attention to the proper details is critical. Our experienced staff handles all details of the hearing: clearly identifying key issues of the hearing, securing the appropriate witnesses, and ensuring administrative items are filed correctly and in a timely manner.
All hearings are provided to the client in a timely manner.
A preparation session well in advance properly prepares witness testimony and submission of additional documentation, if necessary.
Experienced attorneys and hearing representatives are available for hearing representation.

The cost of the unemployment tax system is a major expense that is funded 100% by the employer. The unemployment insurance tax is also one of the few taxes which a business or organization can directly control. Preventing unemployment charges to the account is the cornerstone of tax savings.
