3 State of Vermont Department of Labor The attached table provides information on wages, benefits, employer contributions and employment by industry for the calendar year 2014 in establishments subject to the provisions of the Vermont Unemployment Compensation Law. The following is an explanation of the categories used in the table. INDUSTRY: Classification by industry is made according to the North American Industry Classification System, TOTAL WAGES: Total wages reflect total wages paid to wage and salary workers as reported by employers on quarterly contribution reports and includes estimates for employers who are delinquent in filing contribution reports. TAXABLE WAGES: Taxable wages represent the first $16,000 in wages paid to individual workers during the calendar year. This is the wage base upon which the employers pay their UI contributions. Taxable wages are reported by employers on quarterly contribution reports and include estimates for delinquent employers. Taxable wages are shown only for employers who are required to pay a UI tax or have elected to do so under an option accorded to nonprofit organizations in Title 21, Section 1321, V.S.A. Such employers are identified as TAX PAYING EMPLOYERS in the attached table. REIMBURSING EMPLOYERS are those nonprofit organizations, which have elected to reimburse the Department for actual benefit costs incurred, rather than pay a tax on taxable wages. The State of Vermont and most local government entities which have not elected to pay taxes are also reimbursable. UI BENEFITS PAID: These are gross UI benefits paid and have not been adjusted for refunds or recoveries. Benefit costs are distributed by industry based upon the employer(s) charged for the benefit costs. Benefit costs not charged to an employer's account are listed as Not Charged to an Employer at the end of the report. Amount includes regular and extended benefits. EMPLOYER CONTRIBUTIONS: These are the payments, required by State law to be paid by the employer to finance unemployment benefits. Amounts in the table represent contributions, or taxes, due on taxable wages for These numbers are different from amounts actually collected, which include some payments for the previous year and will not include amounts owed for those who are late in their payments, i.e., delinquents. Estimates are made for delinquents and are included in the figures in the report. Generally, no more than five percent of all reports are delinquent. ANNUAL AVERAGE COVERED EMPLOYMENT: This is an annual average employment based on data for the middle of each month as reported by employers. Includes estimates for nonreporting and delinquent employers. COMPARABILITY OF DATA Distribution by industry of UI Benefits Paid is not completely comparable to the other data in the report due to the differences in how the data is collected. Total Wages, Taxable Wages, Employer Contributions and Annual Average Covered Employment are collected for each business location. UI Benefits Paid is charged to an employer, not to a location. This only affects data for employers reporting multiple locations with different 3-digit industries. For such an employer, the industry with the largest share of employment would be charged for all UI Benefits Paid. Total Wages would be included in the industry in which the wages were earned. The industry with the largest share of employment would be charged for all of UI Benefits Paid but only the portion of Total Wages earned by that industry.
