Update from DETR regarding Contributory & Reimbursable employers
CARSON CITY, NV – Recently finalized regulations allowing relief to both Contributory and Reimbursable Employers’ Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit charging were announced today by the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR). Due to the state of emergency declared on March 12, 2020 by Governor Sisolak, the Employment Security Division of DETR was able to respond to employer needs by relieving charges and maintaining their existing experience rating.
Contributory Employers, those businesses making quarterly contributions to the UI trust fund, will not be charged against their experience record for the second, third and fourth quarters of 2020, or the first and second quarters of 2021. Contributory Employers will not receive a charge statement for these quarters.
Reimbursable Employers, who reimburse DETR dollar for dollar for any charges to their UI account, will not have payments due for the second, third and fourth quarters of 2020, or the first and second quarters of 2021. Reimbursable Employers will not receive a billing notice for these quarters.
There are many reasons for the relief of charges, however, the heart of the matter is the tremendous level of unemployment insurance fraud faced by Nevada and the nation. DETR is doing everything in its ability to ensure employers and businesses are not held accountable for bad actors submitting imposter claims using stolen identities.
“We’re pleased to seize this opportunity to help employers and businesses rebuild and recover from the economic effects of the pandemic. We understand the concern Nevada employers have experienced by not knowing the status of their Contribution and Wage Report, and are glad to share this update,” said DETR Director Elisa Cafferata.
There are myriad ways DETR partners with employers, including collaboration with state elected officials to ensure ongoing support for Nevada businesses. From EmployNV.gov which is the largest job bank in Nevada and a direct link to thousands of job seekers, to Silver State Works which provides financial incentives to hire qualified individuals, you can find more details with this Business Resource Guide.
