Responding to Job Separations

THE PROCESS FOR JOB SEPARATIONS

When an employee is separated from employment and files a claim to collect unemployment benefits, any employer listed on the claim is notified via letter and is required to submit job-separation documentation. This documentation allows us to make decisions about whether unemployment benefits should be paid to the previous employee.

Employers can respond in two different ways:

  1. Fax the "Request for Facts About a Former Employee's Employment", Form UIB-290, to 303-318-9014
    OR
  2. Access "MyUI Employer," an online tool for Employers.

ATTENTION: COVID-19 UPDATE

If you sign up to receive and respond to requests for "Job Separation" information online, you won't have to worry about getting the mail at your mailing address or the possible spread of germs from paper and/or envelopes.

If you do not respond on time to the request for information, that will not hold the payment to an individual's benefit payments account. However, our staff may have to contact you for information in the future.

ONLINE TOOLS FOR EMPLOYERS

"MyUI Employer" offers many conveniences, including an online tool called the "State Information Data Exchange System" (SIDES) found in the MyUI Employer system.

Both large, multi-state and small employers are encouraged to sign up to receive and respond to job-separation notifications using SIDES.
