New solution streamlines claims management; lowers unemployment costs for employers.
BALTIMORE- (December 15, 2010)-Deluxe Payroll, one of the mid-Atlantic’s leading payroll service firms, today announced that it is now offering its clients unemployment cost management as one of its flexible and comprehensive payroll and human resources solutions. This new service will enable employers to lower their unemployment costs while outsourcing the often complex and challenging task of managing unemployment claims. Deluxe Payroll is now offering the following services to manage unemployment costs:
• Claims administration – every unemployment claim is reviewed for accuracy and legitimacy and tracked electronically to ensure an accurate determination of a claimant’s eligibility
• Hearing consultation and representation – proactive consulting on effective documentation and disciplinary practices are provided at unemployment hearings
• Benefit charge audits – every benefit charge statement is examined to ensure appropriate payment to each claimant and protest erroneous charges
• Insight management reports – Web-based claims reporting allows clients to review existing claims, appeals and hearings online
“Unemployment tax is the only tax that a business owner actually has control over, and many business owners – particularly those in industries with high employee turnover – are paying more money than necessary, simply because they do not have the proper time or resources to successfully manage their claims,” said Brian Pfeifer, chief operating officer, Deluxe Payroll. “Now we have the means to take this responsibility off of our clients’ plates and manage their unemployment tax process from start to finish. When every claim is accurately accessed, documented, and protested when appropriate, most business owners will find a significant annual cost savings.” Unemployment cost management is the newest offering from Deluxe Payroll, which specializes in providing flexible and comprehensive payroll and human resources solutions to businesses throughout the greater Baltimore and Washington metropolitan area. Headquartered in Towson, Md., Deluxe Payroll has served the local business community for 27 years.
