I’m tired of having people get unemployment benefits when I fired them for being bad employees. Stealing, lying and coming in late — it doesn’t seem to matter. What can I do to make sure people don’t get unemployment payments? Can I document better?

One thought on “I Fire Bad Employees. Why Do I Have to Pay for Their Unemployment Benefits?”
I never understand why employers think that they are passing a message on to those fired employees when they fight unemployment payments. First of all, any legal company that has employers has to pay unemployment insurance to cover those payments and you are not saving anything by delaying the payments. Second, the labor department eventually checks their records and if they see a constant trend of not paying/or delaying/ or denying the payments, they are going to rule that the employees get their unemployment benefits. So just stop thinking you are saving costs and just allow the payments to process. Eventually, that employee will find an employer that isn’t you. And if you are constantly hiring and firing people, you need to look at both your hiring tactics (stop looking at just the basics) and your actual job expectations versus what you “sell” the position to be.
