Employers: Save Money by Providing Accurate Information to Employees Who May File for UC Benefits The Employer Information Form (Form UC-1609(P)) can help your company save money. Use it to provide accurate information to separating employees and employees working reduced hours who may apply for UC. This simple, effective measure can help to ensure that the department sends requests for separation information to the appropriate employer address, which can reduce inaccurate UC benefit charges to your account that can increase your UC tax rate.
