Group Unemployment Compensation Program

IHA’s GUCP program is designed to help members reduce and control unemployment insurance liability and costs through professional management. Participating hospitals benefit from reduced unemployment liability and significant success rates in cases involving misconduct.

GUCP provides proactive training for supervisors and managers in hiring, evaluation, discipline, documentation, discharge and other activities which impact unemployment costs and turnover.

When unemployment claims are filed, our team provides complete claims management, freeing up valuable internal resources. From the first timely and accurate responses to hearing representation and witness preparation, members have the benefit of our professional expertise and understanding of the process.

To further help with reducing liability, members can benefit from a review of employment policies and information on changing employment law to keep up to date on best practices.
