Requires the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) to convene a work group to develop recommendations regarding the allocation of responsibility for unemployment benefit charges among the claimant's employers.

The work group will include representatives of organizations representing the interests of large and small employers, organizations representing the interests of employees, and other stakeholders.
