What is it?
When a person files an initial claim or restarts an existing claim, the most recent employer receives a Notice of Claim Filed.
If a claimant did not work and earn four times the weekly benefit amount from his or her last employer, we will also mail a Form 220 to the next-to-last employer.
When you receive the Form 220:
Mail or fax the completed form to the Oregon Employment Department within ten days after the date we mailed the form. This protects your appeal rights.

Why should I respond?
Our adjudicators investigate separation and eligibility issues. We rely on you, the employer, for much of our information. Your timely response to this notice entitles you to a decision you can appeal if an issue exists that may affect the person's eligibility for benefits. If a claimant stopped working for you for any reason other than lack of work, provide details of the separation in the space provided and use the back if necessary. Please be sure your information is correct and true. Willful false statements can result in additional charges against your account.
Your response is very important. The facts surrounding an employee's separation can directly affect your tax rate because we decide to pay or deny benefits based, in part, on this information. Without your response, we must make a decision based on available information. Decisions to allow benefits affect all base year employers. Benefit charges may affect tax rates or contributions as a result of a person's most recent separation.
