Georgia has seen some of the highest unemployment rates in the country resulting in historic levels of claims for unemployment insurance. Unemployment insurance is temporary income for workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own. In Georgia, employers pay the entire cost of unemployment insurance benefits but nonprofit employers have options for how they pay those unemployment costs and small nonprofits may not be required to pay at all. Nonprofits can avoid paying unnecessary unemployment costs by understanding the system and appealing improper claims.

During this one hour webcast, our speaker explains:

  • Which employers are required to pay into Georgia’s unemployment tax system;
  • Options for nonprofits in paying unemployment;
  • Who is eligible for unemployment benefits;
  • How to avoid paying unnecessary unemployment costs; and
  • What to expect in an appeal.
