    Attendees will learn about best practices to manage UI issues in their workplace and gain the knowledge about employer rights and responsibilities under UI law. The session is appropriate for business professionls who are new to UI issues as well as those who'd like to discuss specific UI topics in more detail.

    We will cover:

    • How Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax rates are determined
    • How an applicant's benefits eligibility can affect UI tax rates for their former employers
    • What employers can do to prevent unnecessary charges to their UI account
    • Tips to avoid the most common UI mistakes
    • Information on properly classifying a worker as an independent contractor versus an employee
