Important UI Changes and Trends for Wisconsin Employers

On October 20, 2016, Mike Gotzler will present, “Important UI Changes and Trends for Wisconsin Employers” as part of Annual HR Conference conducted by the Associated Builders & Contractors.

Session description:

Appointed UI Advisory Council Member, Attorney Michael Gotzler, will discuss recent UI changes and emerging trends. While WI employers have benefitted from a return to a positive balance in the State’s UI Trust Fund, employers need to continue monitoring other changes to the UI system, including new enforcement priorities. The Wisconsin Legislature has been busy and DWD continues to issue important new regulations. Meanwhile, independent contractor misclassification is coming under increasing scrutiny from a variety of taxing authorities, including UI agencies. This session will bring attendees up to date on recent legislative and regulatory changes, highlight changing enforcement trends and discuss strategies for limiting exposure to costly independent contractor misclassification penalties.
