Do trade union employees or employers pay more for unemployment insurance?

Question by : Do trade union employees or employers pay more for unemployment insurance?
Do trade union empoyees or employers pay more for unemployment insurance than othe employers or employees. I know an electrician who gets laid off atleast once every year. To be laid off twice a year is not uncommon. He has been collecting unemployment for the past 13 months. That is about 26,000 dollars the state has paid him.
If I wrecked my car once or twice a year I would have much higher premiums than people who didn’t wreck their car. Do these guys pay more or do they just take advantage because they can.

Also, what can be done about this kind of thing.

Why do employers fight unemployment compensation claims?

Question by M: Why do employers fight unemployment compensation claims?
My previous company let me go over a few lies told by other employees and an honest mistake that I fessed up to once I realized it and tried immediately to rectify. Bottom line is census was down and they needed to lay some workers off. Now I have just been to an unemployment hearing where the managers, not even my immediate manager came in with a lawyer to fight my claim. I understand that the company pays unemployment insurance but that the state funds the claims? Why would there be all this commotion and need for lawyer? I’ve never been fired, let go, or even left a company on anything other than good terms so this is very foreign to me.

Best answer:

Answer by Hannah
Because they also pay part of the claim, not just the state.
“Reimbursing employers must reimburse the state dollar-for-dollar for the benefits paid to their former workers.”

Montgomery County, Ohio Announces Benefits for Employers Hiring Individuals Returning from Prison

Dayton, OH (PRWEB) February 28, 2013

The Montgomery County, Ohio Ex-Offender Reentry Policy Board and the Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry welcomed U.S. Senator Rob Portman and U.S. Congressman Mike Turner to Dayton to discuss benefits available to employers who hire individuals returning to our community from prison.

U.S. District Judge Walter H. Rice and Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman, Co-chairs of the Montgomery County Reentry Policy Board, joined Senator Portman, Congressman Turner, Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce President Phil Parker and business owners for a media event held at the Dayton Convention Center.

Montgomery County, on an annual basis, sees approximately 1,700 to 2,000 women and men return to the community from state and federal prisons to every zip code in the county.

Intense teaching and coaching for ex-offenders working to change their lives for the better have shown significant results since the start of Montgomery Countys Reentry Program in December 2010. Employment is one of the keys to that success.

Montgomery County employers who work through the Office of Reentry can hire ex-offenders who have soft skills training and employers are eligible for tax credits and incentives, said County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman. Work opportunities provide hope and a chance to achieve success for ex-offenders who have made the decision to turn their lives around.

Employers who hire ex-offenders through the MCOER are guaranteed to be matched with individuals who have:

Soft Skill Training
Access to in-prison training and state issued certificates of achievement and employability
A pre-screen drug test

Other incentives that benefit employers:

A Federal Bonding program for ex-felons for up to $ 5,000.
The Federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit available after the employee works the required number of hours, either full or part time.
Access to a company (WOTC Solutions) that will take responsibility for all required tax credit paperwork and reporting. They charge a fee from the tax credit so the risk to the employer is minimal.

When ex-offenders partner with community resources to turn their lives around, they have a greatly enhanced chance of avoiding criminal behavior and, in many cases, are able to gain employment, housing and reunification with their family, said U.S. District Court Judge Walter H. Rice.

In 2005, at the beginning of Montgomery Countys current effort to reduce recidivism, the county recidivism rate was 44.7%. By the end of 2011, the county recidivism rate had fallen dramatically to 32.2%. The Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry is pleased to announce, over the past two years, an overall recidivism rate of 9.3% for all 1,371 clients who are eligible for and participated in specific programming.

The annual cost to incarcerate an individual is about $ 25,000. The cost to provide an ex-offender with a cognitive based reentry program with proven results is less than $ 1,000.00 total.

To learn more about the benefits of hiring individuals returning from prison, employers can contact the Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry at 937-225-6460.
