UNEMPLOYMENT COST MANAGEMENT

Controlling unemployment costs with Employer Representatives

We know how overwhelming it can be to control unemployment compensation costs.  Your hospital must pay unemployment taxes.  Its the law.  But are you paying more than you have to?  By failing to carefully monitor accounts, and allowing unqualified individuals to collect benefits, most hospitals are doing just that.

During the last 30 years, ERI has developed and refined strategies that allow clients to effectively control unemployment compensation costs.  These proven strategies enable ERI to reduce the amount of benefits paid to former employees and make certain that only those who qualify for benefits can collect.  What’s more, ERI relieves members of the time-consuming paperwork required to process claims.
