A review of all payroll, claims, determinations, appeals and previous
benefit charge histories by social security numbers is completed
to determine if the charge is valid. Potential errors are reviewed
by our expert staff, and benefit charge protests are submitted to
the State, if applicable. The appropriate follow-up is completed

tax rate verification.
Landis and Associates provides a full-service claims administration
that is flexible and user-friendly. Our expert staff assumes full
claims administration responsibilities from the initial filing of

When we first partner with your organization, a request is made
for historical termination and claim data and a review and
analysis is completed, allowing us to familiarize
ourselves with your company. Power of Attorney letters are sent
to the states in which you operate, advising them that we are authorized
to represent you in matters related to unemployment compensation.
Upon receipt of unemployment documents, your Landis representative
will contest claims on your behalf, appeal unfavorable determinations
and decisions, and consult with your personnel in preparation for
unemployment hearings should they occur. Landis
and Associates will also provide your management personnel with
expert unemployment hearing representation at the hearing itself.
Should the hearing decision be unfavorable on your behalf, we can
file an appeal with the State Board of Review.
We know that most employers have procedures in place for controlling
unemployment compensation, and some do an adequate job. However,
we can save an employer thousands of dollars in unemployment claim
liability based upon our expertise in this area and resources solely
devoted to your partnership with our firm.
