Unemployment Insurance Handbook for Employers (UCB-201-P)
Section 1 - Benefits
PART 2 - Required Posters and Notices
Notice to Employees about Applying for Wisconsin Unemployment Benefits
All employers covered by Wisconsin's Unemployment Insurance law are required to prominently display a poster in each work place. Posters are available in English, Spanish and Hmong along with abbreviated instructions in seven other languages. Please print the online posters.
Posters should be permanently posted in a sufficient number of locations at each work site, such as on bulletin boards or near time clocks, so that all employees will have the opportunity to read them. Posters should always be clearly visible and not covered up by other items. One central location will not usually satisfy this requirement unless it is a location which all employees normally use to reach their work stations, to obtain their pay or to eat. If only one location is chosen when several are available, you must notify your workers that the chosen location will be the posting place for all official notices.
If you do not have a permanent work site regularly accessed by your employees, an individual copy is to be provided to each employee.
Write the business name and address connected to your UI account on the poster. This will ensure employees know how to report your business when filing for unemployment. The business name and address can be filled in before or after printing the poster.
If you are not able to print the online posters, call 414-438-7705 to request copies.
Other Special Notices
Chapter DWD 120 also requires that the following special notices be given to certain employees.
- Employers who have been designated by the department as seasonal employers must notify employees that wages earned in seasonal employment may be excluded when determining his or her eligibility for unemployment benefits. For this exclusion to apply, the notice must be provided on Form UCB-9381-P or an equivalent before the employee starts working.
