Unemployment is an insurance program providing temporary, partial wage replacement to workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own. The program is funded by Unemployment premiums paid by employers based on the amount of wages paid for covered employment. The Unemployment Premium or "tax" is paid on the first $12,000 only in gross wages an employer pays to an individual in a calendar year.
