ST. LOUIS, Sep 16, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- TALX Corporation (NASDAQ:TALX), a leading provider of
payroll-related and human resources services, has launched a special
initiative for providing information on how the unemployment insurance
system has been affected by Hurricane Katrina and how employers can
prepare for claims filed by displaced workers.
"The Hurricane Katrina devastation is far-reaching, and many
employers need up-to-date unemployment insurance information as it
develops," says Ed Chaffin, president of TALX UC eXpress, the business
line dedicated to helping employers manage their unemployment taxes.
"TALX has assembled pertinent disaster and unemployment compensation
information and is providing regular updates on our Web site
(www.ucexpress.com) for all employers."
Employers with operations in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and
Florida have begun seeing displaced workers applying for unemployment
benefits as the state agencies are able to process claims. One unusual
complication is that many of these claims will be filed outside the
worker's home state depending on their relocation status.
To expedite the processing of unemployment benefits to displaced
workers, TALX State Relationship Managers are working with each of the
affected state agencies to simplify the job of gathering information
for claims. TALX is also working with clients to identify, in advance,
workers employed in the impacted areas.
TALX Corporation is a leading provider of payroll-related and
human resources services. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, TALX holds a
leadership position in two key areas -- automated employment and
income verification via The Work Number(R) and unemployment tax
management via UC eXpress(R). The TALX suite of electronic services
also includes tax credits and incentives, paperless pay, time
tracking, W-2 management, I-9 management, and onboarding services. The
company's common stock trades in the Nasdaq National Market under the
symbol TALX. For more information about TALX Corporation, call
