EMPLOYER FILED UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS
The SC Department of Employment and Workforce is encouraging impacted employers to consider filing on behalf of their employees to streamline the process for filing unemployment claims for all parties involved. Employer Filed Claims are more convenient and eliminate the step of an employer having to verify a worker’s claim.
