Study Finds Electronic Unemployment Insurance Data Submission Tool a "Game-Changer" in Accuracy, Timeliness, and Reducing Man Hours

A study conducted earlier this year found when state and territory Unemployment Insurance (UI) agencies, in conjunction with small and large employers, and third-party employer representatives, utilized the secure State Information Data Exchange System (SIDES), a tool administrated by the National Association of State Workforce Agencies, (NASWA), to transmit and verify UI claims information pertaining to former employees, the relevant data was significantly more accurate and timely than that of entities who did not utilize SIDES. Furthermore, employers of all sizes and third-party employer representatives who utilized SIDES to transmit and verify UI claims data with UI agencies experienced a remarkable reduction in man hours spent and paperwork associated with traditional verification of former employee UI claims data.
