Does Zenefits handle unemployment benefits?
Zenefits does not administer unemployment benefits and is not involved in the unemployment benefits application process.
- Unemployment insurance premiums are paid to the state as payroll taxes. Employers should register for unemployment account numbers with the appropriate agency in each state where employees live, and provide these numbers to payroll providers.
- Upon termination, workers can contact their state's Department of Labor (or equivalent state organization) for more information on their eligibility and to apply for UI benefits.
Workers who quit are not eligible for unemployment.
