I agree it's a slimy thing to do, but it's entirely legal.
    No, they pay the unemployment insurance money regardless. Even if zero people claim it, they still have to pay the insurance money. Now, if a multitude of people claim it from them, their yearly costs will increase, just like most insurances. Like auto... you keep getting into accidents, your costs go up. But whether or not you ever USE the insurance, you still have to pay it. Same with unemployment insurance. Employees and employers pay into it regardless.

    I think we need to get the government out of the unemployment racket (including the taxes connected) and allow the people do handle such situations by themselves. For example, a person could take the money and invest it into his/hers own unemployment fund or just like benefits offered at jobs, such company could offer an unemployment fund you pay into and get back if you leave and or get fired from the job as an incentive to take the job.
