Utah’s unemployed continue to benefit from the best unemployment insurance and appeals programs in the nation, the U.S. Department of Labor affirmed. Utah was recognized for its operational excellence in appeals decisions and tax operations at the National Unemployment Insurance Directors’ Conference last week in Orlando, Florida. Utah was honored for its top- performing programs, which operate faster and more effectively than any other medium-sized state in the nation, according to the citation.
“We set a high bar of excellence for our service to both the employers who fund Utah’s Unemployment Insurance Program, and those individuals in need of temporary financial support,” said Jon Pierpont, executive director of the Department of Workforce Services. “These honors highlight our commitment to exceptional customer service and wise stewardship of taxpayer dollars.”
