State Information Data Exchange System (SIDES)

NEW! Sign-Up for SIDES — an efficient, electronic way to respond to department requests!
 
SIDES is a new, web-based system that allows the Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) and employers to communicate more efficiently when an individual files a new unemployment compensation claim. The system transmits questions from L&I about the individual's claim to the employer electronically, and allows the employer to respond electronically, which will enhance the timeliness and accuracy of UC claims.
