Wisconsin Unemployment Update

Employers in Wisconsin are now required to inform all employees about the availability of unemployment insurance (UI) at termination. Providing this information is required regardless of the circumstances of separation (including when an employee quits) and even if the employee won’t be eligible for UI.

The information may be provided by letter, email, or text message or by providing the employee with the printed UI poster in person or by mail. The poster is available on the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development’s website here.
