Unemployment Insurance Lunch & Learn

What Iowa employers need to know about unemployment insurance. It’s hard to be over-prepared for unemployment insurance (UI) hearings. Join two officials from the Iowa Workforce Development UI division to learn what to expect before and during a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ), including prehearing processes, the hearing notice, and appeals before the Employment Appeal Board and beyond. They will offer tips, define stages of the hearing process, and share resources to find information relevant to the specific employer’s involvement in the UI claims process. Do not miss this opportunity to prepare for and defend against a claim filed against your organization.

Cost is $29 per person. Instructor: Emily Chafa is an NICC Business and Community Solutions trainer and manager of the Iowa Workforce Development Unemployment Insurance Appeals Bureau. She previously served as an administrative law judge with both IWD and the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals, and as a practicing attorney.
