Question: What is a Reporting Unit Number?

Answer: For your convenience the UI Online Employer Self Service System allows an employer with multiple worksites to set up, file and track each site separately. These can be based on physical location, financial centers, division of labor (union vs. management, etc.) or by user security requirements. The Reporting Unit Number is a system assigned identifier given to each specified site within the employer's account.

Question: How do I remove a reporting unit?

Answer: A list of all active reporting units can be accessed by selecting the Maintain Reporting Units link on the left-hand navigation menu within Employer Account Maintenance. Although reporting units can never be completely removed from an account, they can be inactivated by providing the reason for inactivation and the date of last covered wages for that unit.

Question: Can I submit my wage detail and pay for one unit at a time?

Answer: No. All calculations are completed at the company (employer account number) level - not at the reporting unit level. If you submit only one of several units and proceed to pay, the outstanding units must be submitted later as wage detail adjustments. If you have several people submitting multiple units, make sure only one individual is responsible for the final submission (which should be for ALL units). The payment can be made after the final submission is completed.

Question: Can I set security limits/rights by reporting unit?

Answer: Yes! An employer may restrict user access to a specific reporting unit(s) for the roles of Wage Detail Update and Submit, and Wage Detail View Only. Assignment of roles to an agent may be completed at the reporting unit level for all available roles or access rights. For more information, refer to the Role Assignment Definitions in the Employer Self-Service System User Guide
