Arkansas is what's referred to as a client-reporting state for unemployment insurance. Justworks needs your company’s information to report unemployment taxes under your unemployment account.
In order to report, please send Justworks your Unemployment Account Number and your Unemployment Tax Rate. If you not do not have an Unemployment Account, please begin the registration process via the Arkansas Dept of Workforce Services. Clients should answer no to "are you an employee leasing employer?"
If you’re having trouble completing the online account setup process, please contact the state’s customer service line for assistance.
