Unemployment Insurance: What’s new in EAMS? Standard Occupational Classification codes (from the State‘s Employment Security Department):
You may have noticed a new feature in Employer Account Management Services (EAMS) for Single Filers: You can now include Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes starting with your fourth quarter 2021 tax report.
Including SOC codes is currently optional, but all employers will be required to report SOC codes starting with their fourth quarter 2022 tax report. The feature will be available for bulk filers starting in fourth quarter 2022.
The State recently uploaded an instructional video about including SOC codes.
