Louisiana 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, Justworks needs your Unemployment Account number, Unemployment Tax Rate, and Third Party Access to your account. Since Louisiana requires creating an account with Justworks specifically, all companies with employees in Louisiana need to undergo this process, regardless of whether or not you've had your own LA SUI account prior to joining. Justworks will also require companies to assign TPA after the account has been opened.
