From the introduction:
The Unemployment Insurance Policy Advocate’s Toolkit is designed as a reference guide to the issues we have faced together as advocates since the Great Recession and emerging issues we can expect to face in the future. This 2015 revision is intended to provide our readers with readily-used resources for significant state UI issues. We have added new topics, including independent contractors/misclassification and reemployment assistance. Readers will find resources supporting positive reforms as well as defending unemployment insurance (UI) programs from increasingly strident attacks.
