What We Advocate

National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) — State UI Directors

NASWA is an organization of state administrators of unemployment insurance laws, employment services, training programs, employment statistics and labor market information and other programs and services provided through publicly-funded state workforce systems. NAPEO has been active in NASWA for many years. Through its efforts, NAPEO has been able to address favorably an array of unemployment insurance issues that impact PEOs. Perhaps more importantly, NAPEO has been able to dispel incorrect notions about the impact of PEOs on state UI systems and educate UI regulators about the benefits PEOs have to state trust funds. NAPEO commissioned a landmark study by Ernst and Young that bore out the fact that PEOs benefit the UI system. That study was presented at the annual NASWA conference in 2006 and resulted in the short-circuiting of many state-based public policy initiatives that would have been harmful to the PEO industry.

NAPEO members may access additional resources related to PEOs and unemployment insurance including NAPEO UI Task Force reports, a comparison of state unemployment laws, and a study by Ernst & Young on the impact of PEOs on the unemployment insurance system.
