Indiana has a statute attaching personal liability to payment of UI 
contributions, penalties, and training assessments under our Incumbent Worker 
program.  We have not previously used this in our collections efforts because 
it seems to run counter to courts' reluctance under common law to "pierce the 
corporate veil" and hold officers and agents of a corporation liable.   Can 
anyone offer me any guidance on this?
