The form you received: Notice to Employer – Claimant’s Separation StatementAfter a worker files for unemployment benefits, we send out a Notice to Employer – Claimant’s Separation Statement (PDF, 113 KB) to the employer(s) to verify that the job separation information provided by the worker is correct, and to gather more information if the separation reason is other than “lack of work.” Lack of work means you eliminated the position, have no work available, the assignment ended, you do not have full-time hours available, or similar circumstances.
- If the worker says the separation is due to a lack of work (PDF, 158 KB) and this is correct, you don’t need to return the Notice unless you want the worker on standby.
- If the worker quit (PDF, 1044 KB)or was discharged (PDF, 1065 KB), or was separated for any reason other than lack of work, such as a leave of absence (PDF, 1037 KB), please complete and return the Notice within 10 days along with all supporting documentation relative to the job separation.
