Kentucky 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 Kentucky Unemployment Account number, your Unemployment Tax Rate in Kentucky, and grant Justworks Power of Attorney.
Please reach out to Justworks for the appropriate pre-filled Power of Attorney form to complete.
Justworks requires this info in the following scenarios:
- Your company is coming from a PEO
- You're a new company or have a new hire in Kentucky
- You're coming from a different payroll provider
We don't have a Kentucky Unemployment Account number, what do we do?
If you don't yet have an account yet, you can create one here.
