Employers can now receive and respond to unemployment insurance claims online, saving time, money and potential tax amount increases.
In Idaho, all employers are now required to respond to unemployment insurance claims within seven days.
“If employers fail to respond to unemployment claims, their tax amount will increase,” said Tyler Smith, unemployment insurance technical services specialist.
SIDES / eResponse, the State Information Data Exchange System, provides a free online site for small businesses to respond to state unemployment insurance requests quickly, easily and accurately.
Errors such as incorrect addresses, lost mail or delays can result in employers paying more unemployment insurance than they should be responsible for. These errors are now avoidable by using SIDES.
