Respond to Claims

When an unemployed worker files a claim for benefits, the qualifying claimant's most recent employer and all employers who paid wages on which the claim is based (base period employer), are notified that a claim has been filed. If the claimant has been separated from your employment for any reason other than lack of work, return the notice with full details about the separation to protect your appeal rights.

If you are the claimant's most recent employer, you will be notified whether or not the reasons for separation from your employment are disqualifying. If you are the claimant's base period employer, you will be notified whether or not your account will be charged for the benefits paid to former employees. If any benefits are charged to your account for any calendar quarter, you will receive a notice detailing those charges.
