For experience-rated employers (those with three or more years of experience), the contribution rate is based on a ratio, called the benefit ratio, which is determined in such a way that the greater the unemployment caused by the employer, the higher the rate.
Non-profit institutions and governmental entities may elect to make payments in lieu of contributions due. These are equal to 100% of regular benefit amounts, including dependents' allowances, that are paid to beneficiaries.
