It is true. They delayed my Claim for 3 months to be denied for Benefits because of Talx. Then when information was requested in a hearing, the employer did not supply any info. Hope to delay. If not this has to go to court. If I loose I can't pay court costs. They are dirty

The talx corporation is located in Saint Louis Missouri. It has been owned by equifax for about five years now. The people in Saint Louis, Wentzville (suburb of Saint Louis) and other Missouri locations are very likely talx employees due to their location and comments. Just before the merger of talx and equifax. the talx co. ran background checks on all of its employees. They also reviewed applications of current employees to look for any reason to fire them.
Any employee with a felony, even if it was disclosed on the application and the employee was hired by talx were terminated. They were thrown to the curb and not even allowed to collect their personal belongings or say good bye to their co-workers. I do not know what you call recent history, but this qualifies. Talx is a huge corporation. They hire and fire people all the time. That's just the way it is.

ATTENTION: I GOT OFF EASY! HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED AND WHAT I DID.

Summer of 2007 I was laid off. The office manager got laid off a couple months later. WA state unemployment sent both of us a letter saying we were terminated and in danger of being penalized for fraud. TALX was to blame, and it was the same case manager who screwed us. We got it fixed but it was scary and somewhat time consuming. Immediately contact your previous employer, get them to contact the Third Party Administrator (TPA), contact the TPA case manager and advise them what you are doing and to notify you with their corrected form. Always fill out any state unemployment questionnaire forms but remember to include copies of any documentation showing corrections from your employer and the TPA and note the fact whichever third party administrator misrepresented you to the state (you will have to repeat this fact over and over and the questions are repeated and detailed). Copy all this, fax and mail certified or registered mail, sit tight for a couple of weeks and you should be okay. Meanwhile, I don't know who should be contacted at the state or federal level, good luck with that.
I ADD IT TOOK MAYBE THREE HOURS OF EFFORT AND FIVE BUCKS TO MAIL THE STATE'S PAPERWORK BUT EVERYTHING ELSE I DID THROUGH EMAIL FOR DOCUMENTATION. NO NEED FOR LAWYERS OR APPEALS PROCESS. SORRY IF THINGS HAVE CHANGED FOR THE WORSE BUT ALWAYS TRY THE SIMPLEST ROUTE FIRST AND KEEP YOUR UNEMPLOYMENT WORK SEARCH LOGS ACTIVE/CURRENT DURING AND OF COURSE AFTER THE PROCESS AND TO HELL WITH THE WHINERS HERE, WHY DON'T YOU CHECK OUT THESE NEWS STORIES?

YOU are an idiot. Unemployment benefits are NOT paid by employees. They are a tax paid for by EMPLOYERS!!!! I have worked in unemployment for 23 years.

I interviewed for a unemployment claims coordinator position with TALX in Phoenix, Arizona a while ago. The hiring manager stated they actively educate their client companies on which claims can and "should" be contested, because TALX feels too many "winnable" claims (claims that can be denied" are lost by employers not following through and challenging said claims - so no - Talx does NOT "just do what the client company wants".
I was recently laid off from a company, along with 3 other coworkers, due to "lack of work"; the HR rep reassured all of us that we were eligible for unemployment, and handed around termination letters to us, explaining the exact nature of our termination. When I applied for unemployment, I was initially approved and given a dollar amount. Two weeks later, I received a letter saying that my employer told TALX I had quit my job voluntarily; with all the written evidence to the contrary, it's very hard to believe my former employer honestly directed TALX to take this action. In the state in which I reside, TALX has 4 weeks from the date they notify you that your unemployment claim has been challenged to make a "revised determination" or to deny. And then you go through the appeals process, which takes even longer. Yes, I'm looking for a job, and yes, I'll take fast food or convenience store work to keep the money coming in - but that employees who were told by their employer "yes, you're eligible" to have to go through this waiting game is simply unbelievable.
And DON'T tell me to get a lawyer -I have a zillion other places for my money to go right now!

For the record, TALX is not laying people off because of this or anything else. Make of that what you will.
Get a clue about how the unemployment system really works before you start making comments like this. Things you need to know:
-TALX only provides information from the employer to the state. They LITERALLY CANNOT hold up this process as the state agencies adhere to strong deadlines that must be met in order for the employer/claimant to protest or not protest a claim. They will not consider the information if is not timely.
-The employer, and ONLY the employer, makes the decision about whether to appeal a determination. TALX is only a third party administrator that provides this information to the state.
-The STATE is the only agency that can make a decision about unemployment benefits.
-Employees DO NOT pay into this system. It was paid by employers to a state fund. Therefore, if you get fired for cause or quit for no reason, YOU DON'T DESERVE UNEMPLOYMENT. The employer didn't make you act like a retard, so they shouldn't have to pay you to sit on your ass and be jobless for a year.
-GET A JOB. It's so much easier to just get a job, no matter what it is, than it is to fight with the state agencies every week.
Do some RESEARCH before you start slandering a company that really isn't doing anything wrong except providing a service that employers deal with ANYWAY. Christ.

Sorry ot bust your bubble but OASDI taxes do go to UIC. If you worked in Unemployment you would not know this as you niether paid into it under state law or were just ignorant as you sucked your mney for doing nothing from the state, basically getting welfare for being a paper pusher.

Funny, my wife was fired from her job at a retirement home after 13 years, the catholic church decided firing on trumped up claims was the way to avoid age discrimination suits in their efforts to replace skilled employees with cheaper kids just out of trade school. Her employer didn't even bother to show up for the hearing, faxed a list of "charges", none of which were substantiated by any evidence at all except for a single write up 7 years ago on a a different issue. She won, was on benefits for just 3 weeks before taking a better job, now they're appealing on the same issues through TALX, using the exact same "evidence" that cost them their case the first time around. And Iowa Workforce Development seems to have administrators who appear reluctant to tell the public just how often this type of frivolous appeal happens which of course wastes tax dollars. But apparently provides extra income for the right government employees.
