Navigating unemployment claims can be a complex task, especially for reimbursing nonprofit employers. Therefore, we’re inviting you to join our insightful 90-minute webinar designed to enhance your understanding of the unemployment insurance process, the classifications of employee discharges, and their impact on unemployment claims. 

First, we’ll dive deep into the critical differences between poor performance discharge and misconduct discharge. Understanding this distinction is pivotal, as each has different implications on unemployment benefits and employer liabilities. We’ll walk you through the definitions, characteristics, and practical examples to bring clarity to these terms, ensuring you can appropriately classify employee discharges in your organization. 

Next, we’ll explore how solid documentation can significantly reduce your liability as an employer, highlighting how states handle cases involving employees discharged for misconduct. It is essential to keep in mind that the employer bears the burden of proof in these situations. Proper documentation can provide the necessary evidence to justify the discharge decision and limit or deny the unemployment benefits claim. We’ll share best practices on how to maintain comprehensive, accurate, and legally defensible records that align with employment law. 

Finally, we will delve into the intricate details of state funding for unemployment insurance benefits, including how states assess liability and calculate the corresponding payment amounts. Additionally, we will shed light on the determination of whether a claim is protestable or not, and provide a comprehensive overview of the employer’s responsibilities to ensure you remain in compliance with state requirements.

By attending, you’ll gain the necessary tools and knowledge to navigate the unemployment claim process with confidence, thereby promoting a stable and legal work environment.
