New unemployment insurance computer program replaces 30-year-old system

The Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation on Tuesday announced completion of a new unemployment insurance computer program.

The Web-based operating system for managing unemployment insurance tax accounts is now available to employers, officials said in a statement. The new system includes a secure Employer Self Service (ESS) website that gives employers the ability to better manage their unemployment insurance tax and claims activity online.

All employers are encouraged to visit the new ESS website at http://ui.nv.gov/ess and create a new online user account, which will provide them full access to the expanded features of the website. Employers will be able to utilize the online reporting functionality for their 2015 third-quarter reports.

“This upgrade is long overdue as it replaces an outdated 30-year-old computer system. The new system will offer Nevada’s 62,500 businesses enhanced functionality and flexibility to more easily manage their unemployment insurance tax accounts,” Employment Security Division Administrator Renee Olson said in the statement. “We are excited to provide this state-of-the-art system to the Nevada business community and look forward to working with them to ensure a smooth transition.”
