Unemployment insurance to be discussed

ALBANY, Ga. -- The Albany Area Employer Committee and the Georgia Department of Labor's Albany Career Center will co-sponsor a seminar on unemployment insurance for businesses in the area Tuesday.

Employer committees are groups of local business representatives who establish and maintain working relationships between employers and Georgia Department of Labor career centers.

Entitled "Your Questions About Unemployment Insurance Answered! What Every Employer Needs to Know," the seminar is especially designed for business owners, human resources managers, supervisors and entrepreneurs.

The three-hour program will begin at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Albany Career Center, 1608 S. Slappey Blvd.

Cherry Rizer of Albany, an employment and training consultant with the Georgia Department of Labor, will lead the seminar. She will answer some of the questions that employers frequently ask about the state's UI program. Those questions include what happens when a claim is filed, what claims examiners look for when employees quit or are discharged, how the appeals process works, and how employer tax rates are set.

For more information about the seminar or to register, contact Lynne Jones, Robin Chester or Wanda Causey of the Albany Career Center at (229) 430-5010. Friday is the registration deadline.
