Unemployment Claims Management

In today’s business and economic environment, controlling rising unemployment costs is a critical and challenging task for all employers. Very few employers are familiar with unemployment laws and regulations, most do not have the time or resources to adequately defend themselves and successfully fight claims. Managing claims can be very costly and time consuming; one simple claim can cost a business thousands of dollars in taxes and affect a business’ tax rate for 3 years.
