Unfortunately, UI tax liabilities are only the most obvious risk created by employee separations and unemployment insurance claims. Unemployment insurance claims often expose organizations to other potential liabilities: from wage and hour violations for misclassifying independent contractors to providing plaintiffs with discovery opportunities in other employment litigation settings.
Thus, effective management of an organization’s unemployment insurance experience provides your organization with significant opportunities. From improving your organization’s talent management results and its hiring and on-boarding processes, effective UI management can enhance your organization’s performance management activities, establish sound discipline and termination procedures, and reduce its exposure to discrimination and wrongful discharge claims.Effective UI management activities will additionally help your organization assess human capital risks, measure supervisor and manager performance, more accurately allocate resources, and have a positive impact on the bottom line.
Thus, while UI tax liabilities are the most obvious risk created by employee separations and unemployment insurance claims activity, they increasingly expose your organization to other potential liabilities and increasingly become the starting point for more detailed employment compliance management issues. UI related activities now often represents the initial stages of an increasingly more intense analysis of your employment policy and practices and can result in significant liabilities.
