More to Come: IWD Policy on Potential Employer Charge

April 16, 2020

In last week’s newsletter you read about the announcement by IWD to implement a trust fund balance trigger and start charging individual employers’ accounts for COVID-related layoffs as opposed to the trust fund balance. ABI has been in communication with IWD about this and expressed concern with the approach of treating similarly situated businesses differently. A special policy update call was held Wednesday where ABI received feedback from members to ensure the association is representing interests of all members. ABI continues to work through this with IWD and expects to come to a resolution prior to the trigger going in place. If you have questions or would like to provide feedback, please contact JD Davis or Brad Hartkopf.
