Unemployment Insurance Notice No Longer Required Upon Separation

Ruder Ware

Last October, we shared information about the emergency rule that created DWD 120.02 which required Wisconsin employers to notify workers of the availability of unemployment insurance upon separation of employment in a post titled Wisconsin Employers Must Notify Workers of Unemployment Insurance Upon Separation.

As of March 31, 2021, the emergency rule requiring unemployment insurance notice upon separation expired and employers no longer need to provide the notice upon separation. If an employer would like to continue to notify workers, suggested language can be found on the Department of Workforce Development’s website – https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/dwd/publications/ui/notice.htm/

Employers should still ensure they have the “Notice to Employees About Applying for Wisconsin Unemployment Benefits” poster displayed in the workplace.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
