Why should an employer file by spreadsheet?

By filing by spreadsheet, the employer is able to submit the application for unemployment insurance benefits for all employees. They will have the opportunity to provide all information at once instead of responding to individual requests for information from KDOL. This also allows employers direct access to one of Employer Relations Specialists to answer their questions instead of waiting on hold at our UI Contact Center. The process saves time for employers while helping claimants receive benefits faster and easier!
