When the federal government passed the Unemployment Insurance Integrity Act in 2011, it was largely created as an effort to curb increasing overpayment of unemployment benefits. This act created new restrictions and penalties for state agencies, claimants, and employers alike. Today we’ll take a look at how this legislation has affected employer interests.

As each state had to interpret this Act on its own terms, differences exist in how every state agency views, enacts, and enforces UI Integrity. However, there is a common foundation. UI Integrity calls for employers to respond to state requests in a timely and adequate manner.

Failing to act within the guidelines of UI Integrity will most often result in the loss of appeal rights. If the protest on a case is not seen as both timely and adequate, the state will question that and may not allow the protest to move forward unless good cause for not meeting that bar can be proven. Further, if benefits were incorrectly approved because the employer failed to provide a timely and adequate response, the state will stop future payments but not remove historical charges. Individual states may have other penalties as well, often connected to when an employer shows a pattern of such behavior.

The best way to act within UI Integrity is to be prepared. If your records and documentation are organized and on-hand for when the state requests them, you won’t have anything to worry about. Our team is trained and prepared on what is expected, so if you have any questions, just ask. We are always reviewing your cases and responses, so if we notice something is missing, we’ll let you know! While the penalties for violating UI Integrity can be scary, with the right preparation and a good team watching your account, you should not have anything to worry about.
