Illinois Updates to the Unemployment Act

Make sure you are in compliance with Illinois updates to the Unemployment Act.

You will be presented with a comprehensive analysis of often confusing unemployment insurance laws, with specific guidance and insights beneficial to accountants, bookkeepers, CPAs, human resources and payroll professionals. You will learn sensible approaches to reduce exposure to unemployment claims through effective and simple strategies for successfully contesting unemployment claims. The unemployment claims process is unique and to successfully challenge claims employers must have a detailed understanding of the process and key variables that determine whether an individual is eligible for benefits. Recent amendments to the Illinois Unemployment Insurance Act provide employers with more leverage in contesting claims, so it is critical employers understand how to apply these recent changes to the law. The speaker has substantial experience handling unemployment insurance claims and guiding employers through the process to reduce costs associated with unemployment insurance. In addition, the speaker will explain how implementing methods to effectively handle unemployment insurance claims will also help reduce exposure to general employment claims.
