As the economy stabilizes in the wake of the Great Recession, employers
and organizations are wise to remain attentive to unemployment trends
while expanding workforce operations. The future of unemployment tax
rates requires careful consideration and attention on the part of
employers over the next few years. The experts at Equifax Workforce
Solutions will host a complimentary webcast, "Planning for Unemployment
Taxes in 2013 and Beyond," to inform employers of evolving economic
conditions, changing legislation, and best practices for managing
unemployment costs with those factors in mind. 

    Managing unemployment costs involves both unemployment claims and tax
rate management. As workforce operations grow, employers should consider
the impact of expansion on unemployment tax rates. Additionally, states
may pass legislation meant to improve the integrity of the unemployment
system by October 2013 -- making an efficient claims management program a
necessity for every employer. Offering up expert insights, Equifax
Workforce Solutions will explain and demonstrate the significant benefit
employers can reap by assessing current claims management programs to
increase efficiency and prepare for opportunities that may curb
associated tax costs.

    Human resource, payroll and tax professionals interested in learning more
about current legislative activity and the best practices for
unemployment cost management are encouraged to attend this hour-long
educational session. Certified Payroll professionals who are members of
the American Payroll Association can obtain recertification hour credits
by attending this webcast.
