Evaluating tax systems for financing the unemployment insurance program by Marianne Bowes( Book )

PRI conducted a study for the National Commission on Unemployment compensation to help UI administrators evaluate tax systems and predict how changes in tax systems would change fund balances. Several models of UI tax systems were developed, and their predictive power was tested. The best models were used to predict fund balances under a variety of hypothetical tax systems. The adequacy of fund balances was also evaluated. Federal administrators now consider a fund adequate if the balance is a specified multiple of annual wages 'at the beginning of a period of relatively high unemployment.' Aside from the difficulty of determining when 'relatively high unemployment' begins, this measure treats solvency as the only criterion for evaluating fund balances. States can keep their funds solvent by maintaining arbitrarily high balances or by raising taxes immediately when benefit outflows start to rise, but neither method is desirable. Very high balances represent idle funds that could have been used productively by the employers who pay unemployment insurance taxes and raising taxes when benefit outflows begin to rise means high taxes in a recession. To reflect the actual--often competing--goals of UI fund managers, the study team evaluated UI tax systems by three criteria: the mean balance, the probability of insolvency, and the timing of the tax over the business cycle. A good tax system will produce a fund with a low mean balance and a low probability of insolvency, and will raise taxes in a boom rather than in a recession
Older workers in the market for part-time employment by James Jondrow( Book )
3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the sources and policy implications of the sparsity of part-time work among older workers. One starting point is the contradiction between expectation -- that the transition out of the labor force will be gradual by means of part-time work -- and what appears to be the reality -- that retirement is sudden. Another starting point is the perception of older workers that part-time work at their current wage is scarce. We begin by reviewing evidence from a number of data sets indicating that, despite statements by older workers that they have a strong interest in part-time work, in most cases retirement is sudden. The country's limited number of partial retirees are concentrated in a few industries (agriculture, service, finance/insurance/real estate). Partial retirement is rare in manufacturing, public utilities, and government. Workers approaching retirement age are not spread evenly across industries. Construction, transportation, and finance/insurance/real estate have a high-than-average proportion. The industries that retain the highest proportion of older workers are trade and government. The industries that accept older workers most readily from other industries are agriculture and trade
The unemployment insurance tax and labor turnover an empirical analysis by Frank P. R Brechling( Computer File )
3 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
The research reported here is an extension of a previous enquiry by Brechling and Jehn into the relationships between labor turnover and the unemployment insurance tax. First, the data base was extended through 1977, and the original models were re-estimated. The original and enlarged data sets yielded similar conclusions. Second, the influence of the taxable wage base of the social security tax upon labor turnover was examined. This taxable wage base seems to have a different impact from that of the taxable wage base of the unemployment insurance tax. Third, the relationships between the seasonal pattern of labor turnover and the unemployment insurance tax were examined. The results tended to be weak. Viewed as a whole, the results of the new investigation are not as strong as the original ones, but they do support the conclusion that there are significant relationships between labor turnover and the parameters of the unemployment insurance tax.

Unemployment Insurance and Firm Size by Marianne Bowes( Book )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
State unemployment insurance (UI) systems impose taxes on employers that are used to finance benefit payments to laid-off workers. UI taxes are experience rated, but only imperfectly. Some firms are therefore able to avoid paying for the benefits their laid-off employees receive. In fact, some groups of firms may systematically be subsidized by others, by persistently paying less in taxes than their former employees collect in benefits. The research discussed here has two primary goals. The first is to investigate the extent of cross-subsidization in present UI systems among firms of different size. The second goal is to estimate how small and large firms would be affected by various proposed reforms of these systems. The empirical work is based on administrative records of UI systems in three states-California, Delaware, and Texas. The statistical data were used to measure the subsidy (UI) benefits minus taxes) for firms of different size and to estimate how the subsidy would change if various UI parameters were changed.

The Tax Base of the U.S. unemployment Insurance Tax: An Empirical Analysis ( Book )
1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the United States unemployment insurance benefit payments are financed predominantly by taxes on employers' payrolls. The base of this tax is not the actual but the taxable payroll. Typically the taxable payroll is much less than the actual payroll. Further, theoretical reasoning has led to the prediction that the taxable payroll should rise with (1) labor turnover, (2) wages and (3) the taxable wage base, which is the limit up to which a person's earnings are treated as taxable earnings. In this paper, the determination of the taxable payroll is examined from an empirical point of view. The results lend substantial support to the theoretical formulation ...
