Important Notice on UC Legislative Change

2014-05-13 13:33:14

IMPORTANT NOTICE ON UC LEGISLATIVE CHANGE

Recently, you should have received notification on an Unemployment Compensation (UC) legislative change. (Click here to read the notice.) The information would have been mailed to you by the PA Department of Labor and Industry and  would have included the form UC-1609P – Employer information. The legislation was signed into law (Act 75 of 2013) by Governor Corbett on October 23, 2013, which states it prohibits the crediting of an employer’s unemployment account due to an overpayment of benefit because the employer, or its agent, failed to respond timely and/or adequately to a request for information. 
 
The Department of Labor and Industry will now strictly enforce the four (4) business day deadline on the form UC-44/45 and 15 calendar day deadline on form UC-44FR.
 
To assist employers in mitigating these occurrences, the Department of Labor and Industry strongly encourages the use of the form 1609P. Please see below which form you should use.
