Unemployment Insurance (UI) SIDES is a web-based system that allows electronic transmission of information regarding UI claims between UI agencies and employers.
There are two ways employers can connect to SIDES:
- For employers with a limited number of UI claims, connection is easy through the SIDES E-Response website that can be used to enter the requested UI information.
- For large and/or multi-state employers, connection through a computer-to-computer interface may be more appropriate as it allows employers to customize their system to interface with SIDES. This option requires the employer to do programming.
