The State Information Data Exchange System (SIDES) facilitates the electronic exchange of information between employers and State Unemployment Insurance (UI) agencies for purposes related to administration of UI benefits and taxes. SIDES is operated by the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) under the terms and conditions of a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL).
SIDES E-Response will be unavailable on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, from 3:00 – 7:30 p.m. CT as the system is updated.
What’s Coming with the New System:
- Fraud indicators alerting the state that immediate action is needed
- Intuitive flows with dynamic questions specifically related to the separation reason
- Process to collect employment details from temporary staffing agencies, including questions pertaining to recent job assignments, contacting the staffing agency for further work, and refusal of a new assignment
- Ability to upload supporting information documentation in relevant areas
User guides, help links and contacts will be updated accordingly.
