Are unemployment benefits based on gross pay?
Unemployment Payments and the Law Each state pays its unemployed workers from the pool of unemployment taxes it collected from employers, based on their number of employees …and their turnover history. The formulae is different for each state. According to the Related Links below the state collects payroll taxes from employers, based on their turnover rate. This became a law under the Federal Social Security Act and is administered by the individual states. The only time employers pay employees directly is when the employer has an agreement to do so by the state that collects the taxes from them, in order to opt out of paying the tax. The employer does not receive a bill for payments made, but the state does adjust his tax rate based on his turn over experience. The taxes collected pays for both operational costs as well as benefit payments. Who pays for unemployment benefits? Each state has its own unemployment insurance law and operates its own program. As usual, they may do things a little different down Texas Way. The state issues you the check from its account, So in that since it appears that the state pays you the benefit check, But then the employer is actually the one who funds that state account for that disbursement. So in actuality, the employer is still paying it. In Fact, Unemployment commission employees here will not even call it "Unemployment Insurance" anymore because it is in effect not insurance, They use the term "Unemployment Compensation" instead, or at least when talking to the employer. Here, your former employer pays 100% of the Unemployment Tax as well as any unemployment compensation disbursements you receive. Your unemployment disbursement will come from the states account. But, in Texas, the employer or the employers Payroll processor "Does" get billed, (actually the department calls it an assessment) for every payment made during a recipients benefit term. This is in addition to employer contributions for current active payroll. the assessment ends generally one month after the associated former employees benefits expire and the assessment is met. The amount of this additional monthly assesment is equivelant to the recipients monthly compensation. Turn over is not a factor here because each employer is responsible for his own. So Basically the employer reimburses any funds disbursed by the state through assessment. This of course can be administered differently by other states. Each state levies payroll taxes on it's employers. The employees are not charged for this. The state collects the unemployment funds from the employers through an unemployment tax based on the business "Actuall Payroll". it has nothing to do with a turnover rate. The state, in turn, pays the benefits to the out of work person if s/he qualifies with the state's regulations. Answer The employer pays into a state fund (SUI) and a federal fund (FUTA).
