2011 Senate Bill 12: Revise unemployment insurance business tax assessments
Introduced by Sen. Mark Jansen (R) on January 19, 2011
To prohibit the state unemployment agency from combining the layoff experience of two related businesses for purposes of increasing their unemployment insurance tax assessment unless there have been certain disallowed business transfers or bank account commingling. This refers to concerns that some firms “game” the system by engaging in “SUTA dumping,” or transferring employees to newly created or acquired companies with lower state unemployment tax rates.   Official Text and Analysis.
