Jim's Story

"Before engaging Employers Edge, we were continually surprised and frustrated about the claims that we would lose.."

I am an Owner/Operator of an automobile dealership with 250 employees. We had been managing unemployment insurance on our own for years. We were continually surprised and frustrated about the claims that we would lose. We clearly didn't have the expertise to know how to defend ourselves. Our unemployment costs increased to a point that continuing to do what we had been doing was no longer an acceptable strategy.

We brought on Employers Edge to help us. They taught us how to manage the process and substantiate our cases. They trained our supervisory team about unemployment insurance and taught us strategies that helped us win the types of unemployment claims that we used to always lose. Employers Edge saves us a great deal of money, time and aggravation. We cost ourselves so much time and money trying to handle it on our own. I wish we had hired Employers Edge 10 years ago.

Why did we choose Employers Edge?

  • We realized that handling unemployment claims in-house doesn't save money if you don't have the necessary expertise. Every unemployment claim we lost on our own cost us between $4,000 to $8,000 dollars.
  • After just 1 year of service, Employers Edge had already paid their fee for 10 years - their expertise saves us tens of thousands of dollars every year.
  • I would pay their annual fee just for the educational training they provide - helping us win claims that we always used to lose in the past.
  • We weren't auditing the unemployment charges and taxes being assessed by the state. Employers Edge catches state errors and overpayments we were missing.
