Unemployment Services Trust (UST) Invites Nonprofits to Lunch: Learn How to Reduce Unemployment Costs

by Jessica Lantos

There’s a simple way to reduce operating expenses by lowering unemployment costs. Millions of employers are seeing rising taxes due to prolonged national unemployment – but 501(c)(3)s have an alternative. Join us on April 24th to learn how Unemployment Services Trust (UST) can help your nonprofit opt out of the state unemployment tax system and begin to reimburse the state only for actual unemployment claims. During this seminar, you will learn 3 simple steps your organization can take to reduce unemployment costs, including:

  • Opting out of the state unemployment tax system as a 501(c)(3)
  • Managing reserves to pay unemployment costs
  • Reducing improper claims charges through best practices

This free course is recommended for organizations with 10 or more full time employees, and will be held from 12 to 2PM at the Hilton Garden Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront which is located at 65 Commercial Street. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by April 20th to Jessica Lantos by email, or by phone at 871-1885.
