Unemployment Insurance

Quarterly Reporting for Employers

All employers with employees in Delaware must determine their Unemployment Insurance tax liability, and then must report quarterly to the Division of Unemployment Insurance at the Delaware Department of Labor. Unemployment Insurance is not welfare. Benefits are paid as a matter of right, without regard to need, to eligible claimants who meet conditions fixed by law. To qualify, workers must have earned sufficient base period wages from covered employers, have become unemployed through no fault of their own, and be able to work, available for work and actively seeking work (Section 3315, Title 19, Delaware Code).
