Urge Your Legislators to Pass HB 5367, Reduce Your Unemployment Taxes

Good news: A bill to help reduce your unemployment compensation taxes was unanimously approved by the legislature’s Labor Committee.

But that was just step No. 1 in the legislative process.

Help keep House Bill 5367 going all the way to Gov. Malloy’s desk for signature into law.

Contact your local legislators today

Tell them we need HB 5367 to positively reform Connecticut’s unemployment compensation benefits and reduce your costs!

Tell them HB 5367 is good for business, good for jobs, good for Connecticut!

Here’s what HB 5367 will do:

Instead of raising your taxes, HB 5367 contains basic, practical, proven reforms other states have made, including:

  • Raises the minimum earnings to qualify for unemployment benefits to $2,000.   
  • Requires claimants to post their resumes online to receive benefits after six consecutive weeks of unemployment.   
  • Bases benefits on an employee’s annual salary rather than two highest quarters, to avoid inequitably rewarding seasonal workers.
  • Freezes the maximum weekly benefit rate for three years.
