Unemployment Insurance -- Financing -- Setting Taxes

The federal-state unemployment insurance program is financed primarily by taxes collected from employers whose employees are protected by the program (and therefore entitled to collect benefits). Typically, these taxes are calculated as a percentage of the employer's payroll. The percentage, as well as the amount of the payroll taxed, however, may vary.

Vicarious Liability for Torts of Employees

Normally, tort law requires the party causing the injury to compensate the injured party with money. Through vicarious liability, however, a party other than the one actually causing the injury is held financially responsible for the harm. Several policy arguments exist for the imposition of vicarious liability on seemingly innocent parties.

Unemployment Insurance -- Financing -- Managing Debt

Despite complex tax schedules and funding strategies, there are times when a state's unemployment insurance fund will be insufficient to cover its costs. Typically, this happens during a prolonged recession, when claims for benefits are high and contributions to the fund diminish. Although most states rely on some type of solvency provision to prevent this from occurring, such measures are not always enough.
