New Employer Guide to Unemployment Hearings and Updated Employer's Guide to Unemployment Insurance, Wage Reporting and Withholding Tax

The Department of Labor has released new employer guides for Unemployment Insurance Taxes and Hearings pursuant to the 2013 UI reforms.  The Business Council has had a significant role in the development of the Hearings guide and underlying policy changes and judge training at DOL.  We are looking for feedback from members as to their 2014 experiences with UI hearings to ensure that hearings are being administered in a manner that is consistent and fair to both employer and claimant.
