Maine is what's referred to as a hybrid state for unemployment insurance. Customers with employees in Maine are required to fill out an Employer’s Status Report form in order to inform the Maine Department of Labor that a relationship with Justworks exists. This form requires client signature.
Justworks is required to file Unemployment under our Unemployment Account. Companies will be subject to Justworks’ state unemployment rates. Previous state Unemployment Accounts should be suspended or closed.
