  • Employer Password Reset - Request to have your Reconnect password reset. A link will be sent to the email on file after verifying details about your business.
  • Submit a Mass Protest - Respond to charges filed against your reemployment assistance tax account.
  • Report a Refusal of Work - Report individuals not returning to work when work is available or do not show good cause in refusing an offer of work.

Place holder content.

The RA program provides temporary, partial wage replacement benefits to qualified workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own. It is funded by employers who pay federal and state payroll taxes and is provided at no cost to the workers who receive the benefits.

File a Response

As an employer, it is required that you respond to all documents and forms in a timely manner in order to properly manage your reemployment tax, benefit charges and prevent RA fraud.


UI SIDES and SIDES E–Response have the potential to significantly improve the RA information exchange process. While the best option depends on your specific business needs, both systems offer significant benefits.

File an Appeal

An employer who receives an adverse determination has the right to appeal that determination and participate in a hearing before an appeals referee.
