Important Notice

PLEASE READ – Coronavirus Business & Tax Information as of 3/19/20

Unemployment Benefits

  • All employers must notify their employees of the availability of unemployment benefits at the time of separation from employment.

  • While not required, employers may also consider filing claims for employees impacted by a shutdown, or temporary or permanent layoff by submitting a spreadsheet to the Department of Labor. Filing the spreadsheet will speed up the process for your employees.

    • The spreadsheet and additional information are available at https://www.kansasemployer.gov/uitax/Tax/LayoffSelect.aspx

    • Submitting the spreadsheet does not mean the employer is responsible for the affected employee’s claims. It will be the responsibility of the employee to file weekly claims and be aware of eligibility requirements.

  • Shareholder owner/employees of corporations may also be eligible for unemployment.

  • We have attached the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) from the Kansas department of revenue regarding unemployment for employees that are not working or have reduced hours due to COVID-19.  Information is available at https://www.dol.ks.gov/docs/default-source/default-document-library/ui-covid19-faqs.pdf 

Conserve Cash

  • During these difficult times, focus on ways to conserve cash, as the length and severity are unknown.

  • Communicate with your bank and see if interest-only payments are an option during this critical time.

  • Check with your retirement plan administrator and see if it is possible to allow employees to suspend retirement plan withholding.  Your retirement plan document should state the frequency and terms of changing employee deferrals.

  • Closely monitor any unnecessary business expenses.
