Good news, it is not a bill. We provide this information to employers because we are required to. The Notice of Potential Charges informs employers what the most impact will be to its future “experience rating” (one factor used to determine future UI payroll tax rates) if the person who is seeking benefits gets all the benefits they are eligible for. Employer experience ratings are computed annually, and look at the time period of July 1 – June 30. Because of the timing of the coronavirus, the impact of this is likely to be spread across multiple tax years, minimizing any sudden or drastic changes.
