A little longer then the regular "Ten Minutes with Tom" but GREAT information for Business Owners on the upcoming unemployment rates.
Circle Jan 2nd, 2020 on your calendar. That is the last day the CARES Act is in Force.
Listen to learn more!
More info from the State Of Illinois:
Typical Situation: Our client has seen an increase in their Contribution Rate Determination (unemployment tax rate) that is mailed to all Illinois employers on or about December 1st every year. They also have protested their own unemployment claims but have not been successful at getting benefits denied.
When you hear a business owner say:
• “I do not understand why someone was allowed to collect benefits”
• “I hate dealing with the unemployment office as it is a no win situation”
• “General: complaints about their unemployment claims “
The Consultant educates them on the unemployment laws in Illinois and to help them reduce their state unemployment taxes.
How they Work: They protest the claims filed against the employer and represent the employer at all unemployment hearings and go to their locations to do training sessions to educate the employer on how to handle different types of situations. They will verify all the charges to the employer’s account to make sure they are not being charged more than they should be charged.
You can introduce them:
“It sounds like you may need some help with your unemployment claims against you. I can introduce you to someone that can help. They would be happy to have a telephone consultation to discuss your situation.
Typical Situation: Our client’s systems that are currently in place do not keep track of inventory or improve operations. Our client has outdated technologies that complicate processes and prevent growth. They often lack standard business process and never certain of the best way to handle. They may also struggle with too many manual processes, find it hard to complete upgrades, or have difficulty having their systems talk to each other.
When you hear a business owner say:
Technology Software Consultants help manufacturers and distributors implement application technology that makes their businesses run better. They can help clients solve business problems by using systems that are currently in place or help them to find the appropriate software and vendors to improve operations. They will work with ERP systems, Warehouse Management systems, bar code scanning technology and other supply chain technologies.
How they Work Consultants utilize business analysis skills, sound project management methodology, and common sense to implement systems. They will work with and manage vendors to control the project and ensure that projects are on time and on budget. They also train employees to ensure that they understand what systems are supposed to do as well how to use new technology.
