Need Help With Unemployment Cost Control?

In running your business, you are constantly looking at ways to trim costs, increasing your profit margin. One cost center that many business owners look to are unemployment costs.

As a business owner, you are responsible for paying unemployment insurance premiums for your employees and, when there are layoffs in your company, paying those laid off employees a portion of their wages from the unemployment insurance fund.

Individual states like Connecticut and Massachusetts calculate how much you pay based on a variety of factors, including the size of your payroll, the number of employees, and the amount of unemployment compensation benefits charged against your account through the frequency of employee turn-over and the awarding of unemployment compensation. But there are many ways to limit and control the payout side of the equation.
