The Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency Office of Employer Ombudsman has changed the Unemployment Compensation Notice posting requirements for all Michigan employers. Instead of posting the one-page Information about Unemployment Benefits notice (Form 1710), all Michigan employers are now required to post Unemployment Compensation Notice to Employee (UIA1711). Please note, this new notice contains a “fill-in-the-blank” section that must be completed by employers prior to posting the notice.
Under Michigan law, this new notice must be posted in “easily accessible places frequented by employees.” In addition, Michigan employers are required to provide each employee a copy of the completed form before or at the time of employment separation.
It is recommended that all Michigan employers review their postings and replace their old unemployment benefits notice with this new form.
