Quentelle offers an industry-leading program for unemployment claims management through its partner ValeU NSN to large, medium, and small companies.

Why do You Need a Reliable UI Claims Management Process?

Employees who are terminated from their job for reasons not in their control, such as layoff or furlough, they may be eligible to claim unemployment benefits as long as they meet the state specific requirements of wage and work. Once they have filed a UI claim with the state unemployment office, it becomes your responsibility as an employer to manage that claim.

You will have a choice to either accept or deny the claim. If you take no action, it will be assumed that you accept the claim. While it may appear that a simple way out is to accept every unemployment insurance claim, the cost of these claims can eventually impact your company’s bottom line. An increased number of accepted UI claims could also invite penalties and higher tax rates. For these reasons, it is prudent to have a strategic and efficient unemployment insurance claims management process in place.

Dealing with unemployment claims is an inevitable aspect of being an employer. However, administering claims requires interacting with each state and meeting tight deadlines placed by the governing agencies, which use valuable HR resources and time. Companies must also strive to be compliant by implementing and maintaining consistent separation policies in order to keep unemployment costs down.
