In 2016 The Louisiana Workforce Commission implemented a requirement for Employers to provide job title and hourly pay rate to the wage records reported for unemployment insurance. Recently, the Department began sending notices advising employers who are using incorrect job title a notice with instructions on how to identify correct job titles going forward. The notice provides details of invalid job descriptions and a link to a resource to identify SOC codes which can be used in lieu of them.



Notice Sample:


The Louisiana Workforce Commission requires that you provide the Standard Occupational Code (SOC) and hourly pay rate for each employee during your quarterly wage reporting for Unemployment Insurance Administration. Your quarterly wage record filing for Quarter 2 of 2017 contains Invalid Job Title(s). The following list provides the invalid Job Title for which detailed Job Title or SOC must be entered for the next wage report filing: [insert list]



There is no need to forward these notices to Paylocity and no response is required. Paylocity has been in contact with the Agency and are working to determine the cause for the invalid status of the reported job descriptions which were previously accepted by the Agency.


We will follow up with any additional information regarding any action that may be required for future reporting. Thank you for choosing Paylocity as your Payroll Tax partner. Should you have any questions please contact your Paylocity Account Manager.
