In the next few months, prepare to receive a much higher bill for unemployment insurance (UI). ABC and other groups such as the Buffalo Niagara Partnership spent more than a year warning state leaders that this was coming, but they did not heed our warnings. Now, the hammer is dropping for all employers across the state. Starting very soon, mandatory unemployment insurance rates will increase significantly for employers.

This is a great resource shared with us from our friends at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership. Thank you to Upstate United for its efforts on this issue and for connecting us with BNP.
If you have questions on this issue, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Government Affairs team. We have been working on this issue, with our partners, for more than a year. The State has handled this issue poorly and once again left employers in our state holding the bag.
