null What should an employer tell employees after filing by spreadsheet?

Employers are required to notify employees of their potential eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits. KDOL does ask that the employer inform all employees included in the layoff that identity verification with the Social Security Administration will be conducted once the layoff spreadsheet is processed. If the employee does not pass the verification, they will be asked to supply a copy of their driver’s license and Social Security card to KDOL. Additionally, employees will need to answer all other requests for information from KDOL. They will receive a Monetary Determination along with the K-Ben SLF (Kansas Unemployment Benefits Disclosure) form in the mail.
