Unemployment Insurance Assistance
Employers can file unemployment insurance taxes and find unemployment insurance information online at Employer Self-Service for Unemployment Insurance (ESS).
Large layoffs, reductions, plant closing
In the case of a large reduction in workforce or plant closing, an employer can find out about the legal requirements of advance notice and other requirements of the Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN notice). In those cases, the local contact to provide answers to questions the employer might have and to meet with groups of affected employees, to help them access the service the State provides to dislocated workers, can be found through the WorkOne REACH or WorkOne Office. This service by the State is know as Rapid Reponse because of the short time frame involved in initiating services.
