    "Nothing."  They "prepaid" it in State Unemployment Tax.  But, if they laid people off - their rate / costs will increase the following .. quarter, or year.

    Nothing as its paid in advance, when I owned a business we paid it quarterly. Owned the buisness  for 15 years no one ever filed for unemployment which is good because that increases your unemployment  tax the following quarter/year

    Employers pay a lump sum every quarter (total wages x ...% = tax. Employers also pay a bit into the federal fund. No "individual" amount is charged or recognized.

    Directly - Zero

    Indirectly - Layoffs could increase their state unemployment  tax rate in future years.
