Unemployment Insurance Tax - Employer Updates

2015 UI Contribution Rates Decline

House Bill 1045 passed during the 2014 legislative session. As a result, employers' unemployment insurance (UI) contribution costs may be lower in 2015. The bill, recommended by the UI Advisory Council, included a new contribution rate table. Contribution rates were lowered for all employers' assigned rates based on their account balance and total taxable payroll. The new rate table does not apply to new employers or employers that reimburse the UI Trust fund.
