During the recent economic downturns, unemployment claims have continued to rise.

Not only do employers fund the heavy costs associated with unemployment benefits, but they must incur the time and expense in protesting baseless claims before a liberal administrative agency with a high burden of proof.

This engaging and fast-paced 75-minute webinar will provide employers in all industries with a practical roadmap in assessing and successfully protesting unemployment claims throughout the United States – and with an emphasis on Illinois’ recently amended Unemployment Insurance Act. Participants will receive real-life examples on how to better protect their organization and bottom line.
