Unemployment Insurance


  • A law passed by the Wyoming Legislature has extended the protest period for unemployment benefit claims from 15 days to 28 days following a determination or decision.  This change is effective July 1, 2015.​

In order to provide Unemployment Insurance to individuals who need benefits, the Department of Workforce Services is responsible for collecting Unemployment Tax from employers. The Department's Unemployment Insurance Division collects employer registrations and conducts quarterly reporting.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services can assist employers with all unemployment insurance and tax concerns. Below, you'll find information relating to these important topics.
