"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.
