How we help
Managing unemployment claims can be a complicated and lengthy process. Our team understands this and oversees it on your behalf, enabling you to focus on more strategic initiatives.
Our UI claims professionals review employee terminations, ensure proper coding, collect documentation supporting a termination, and respond to a state for adjudication of an unemployment claim.
Hiring the right person, for the right role, at the right time can prevent you from losing staff that aren’t the right fit, and the subsequent unemployment claims that may occur. Our full-cycle recruiting services can help you achieve this.
Ready to get started with our PEO solution?
What needs to be managed by human resources if an employee leaves?
Your HR team or PEO should manage the following items before and after an employee termination, layoff, or resignation:
There are several forms of documentation to keep on hand for each of your employees, like payroll files, medical files, performance reviews, leaves of absences, etc. Having these resources on record and easily accessible contributes to a streamlined HR workflow and can help protect your company in case of a lawsuit or unemployment claim.
The unemployment tax rate varies by state, which means unemployment cost management for one company over another may differ. However, on average, one unemployment claim could cost you $4,200 to $10,000 or more. Managing these costs with unemployment cost control is an important part of running a business.
One of the reasons companies spend so much on unemployment is because they don’t work to dispute any initial claims as a part of the unemployment claims process or monitor fraudulent claims. The following are individuals who are eligible for unemployment benefit charges:
- Employees who were laid off
- Employees who worked for a specific amount of time
- Employees who earned a minimum amount in wages (varies by state)
- Those who are actively seeking work while they collect benefits
If the employee filing a UI claim does not meet the eligibility requirements, which you can identify from the personnel files and documentation you kept on hand, then you may not owe them unemployment benefits and can save your company some money.
