    Default Employer Didn't Pay Unemployment Taxes

    My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: ohio

    I was recently denied unemployment because my former employer failed to pay their unemployment taxes. The state doesn't show my employment for this company. I filed an appeal submitting my W2.

    My question is can my employer's failure to pay the tax deny benefits? What other recourse against the employer do I have.

    No, your employer's failure to pay his/her UC taxes should not impact your ability to collect UC. Your W2 should be sufficient proof for the appeals case.

    You're better off using paystubs. A W2 is going to exclude pretax deductions that could make for a higher weekly benefit. if you get less than the max benefit, check into it.

    Also, the quarters for earnings are very precise. It goes by the date paid and not when the work was done. While a quarter is 13 weeks, you can have a situation where there might be up to 15 weeks of earnings in a quarter that will increase your high wage quarter. If you get a check on Jan 1, Apr 1, Jul 1, Oct 1 and are paid every two weeks, you might get lucky and have a packed quarter because of the extra two weeks wages from the prior quarter.

    Did the employer not pay unemployment taxes AT ALL, or just omit you from the reports? It could make a difference.

    My understanding is that the employer didn't pay the taxes at all. The person from the unemployment office told me their account has been closed for awhile.
