Many dentists will agree it's never a good idea to hold onto an employee—if you would dismiss the person otherwise—out of concern for an increase in your unemployment insurance.
Each state has its own formula to calculate unemployment benefits but all the states use the employee's earnings when figuring it out. The length and maximum weekly benefit varies state to state. How much any given employer is responsible for will be based on a percentage of what the employee earned from their previous jobs over a specific period of time and can't exceed the state's weekly maximum.
