Our comprehensive unemployment compensation program delivers unique, customized solutions to help our customers reduce and control their unemployment taxes and lower operating costs. These services include:

Experience

CareWorksComp’s staff averages 20 years of unemployment claims and tax management. Our staff helps reduce your administrative burden.

Claim Impact/Analysis

CareWorksComp provides financial analysis to determine the tax rate impact of particular claims. This is information businesses need to know in determining when or if to protest a claim as well as for tax budgeting.

Claims Management

Experienced, well-trained claims consultants will aggressively protest and appeal all unwarranted claims. Employers can avoid claim penalties and meet statutory requirements. No more dealing with time-sensitive and lengthy claim questionnaires.

Hearing Preparation/Representation

Save time and hassle by consulting with CareWorksComp on which separation issues are appropriate to challenge at hearing. Representatives conduct pre-hearing conferences so all employer witnesses know what to expect.

Benefit Charge Auditing

The improper payment rate for most unemployment state agencies is high. CareWorksComp’s auditing system will automatically check for erroneous charges applied to your account. We protest errors and track them until a credit is received.

Customized Management Reports

CareWorksComp will provide you with customized reports, making them a valuable tool in reducing your unemployment costs.

Account Review

Your assigned Account Executive can consult with you to review your unemployment experience and provide an in-depth analysis and solutions to reduce costs.

Tax Analysis

CareWorksComp can offer tax analyses, including rate verifications, joint account analysis and voluntary contribution recommendations.

We recently were involved with an unemployment claim and needed immediate advice. It was so good to find Kammy at CareWorksComp, our third party administrator (TPA). She partnered with me, coached me and eased my burden. Because of this experience with Kammy, I will continue to use CareWorksComp as our TPA and highly recommend their services to all other businesses.
