Unemployment Insurance Agency invites employers to attend seminars Free seminars to be held in West Michigan

Agency: Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

JUNE 6, 2011 - West Michigan employers will have an opportunity to learn more about the unemployment insurance system at an upcoming Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) Employer Seminar.

This will be the fourth year that the agency offers seminars, which have proven to be quite popular among employers throughout the state.

The seminars are conducted by UIA staff and will cover such topics as how unemployment benefits are calculated and then charged to employers, how most employers may qualify for a state UI tax credit, how to complete UIA tax-related forms and how to use the various online services the agency offers.

The agency reminds employers to register early as these sessions are expected to fill up quickly.

The sessions cover the areas of Michigan's unemployment insurance tax and benefit programs that employers most often have questions about as well as discuss recent changes at the agency and offer plenty of time for answering employer questions.

This year a new feature has been added to the seminars in which participants will see a mock hearing, where attendees can get a better understanding of what to expect during the appeals process.

Agency staff will also be on hand with online access so they can help immediately answer any employer inquiry regarding their account status.

Each seminar will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. with a one hour lunch break. The agency will not be providing lunch.
