If I terminate an employee after a 90-day probationary period, do I still have to pay unemployment insurance?

Contrary to popular belief, a probationary status has no bearing on whether an employer has to pay. Whether an employer plans on having its employee work for a week, a month, or long-term, the employer is required to pay unemployment insurance on that employee and may be liable for benefits that employee later draws if he or she becomes unemployed. Aside from a very few special exceptions, employers with one or more employees (part-time or full-time) are subject to unemployment insurance laws.
